town, Nuneaton and Bedworth borough, administrative and historic county of Warwickshire, central England. Coal mining, from two local pits, was important until it ceased at the end of the 20th century. Today the economy pivots on light engineering and the manufacturing of tapes, ribbons, and trimmings. Bedworth and neighbouring Nuneaton have merged. Corley Hall, to the west of Bedworth, is reputed to be the model for Hall Farm in George Eliot's Adam Bede. Pop. (2001) 82,488.
