A Guide to Warwickshire from A Shrieval Perspective

The County

Warwickshire is a landlocked non-metropolitan County in the West Midlands region of England. The County town is Warwick, although the largest town is Nuneaton. The County is famous for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare.  The estimated population of Warwickshire is c 600,000. 

The five districts of North Warwickshire,Nuneaton and Bedworth,Rugby,Warwick and Stratford upon Avon together form the Warwickshire County Council area, and are within the 1974 boundaries.  The shape of the administrative area of Warwickshire differs considerably from that of the historic county, which also includes the now autonomous unitary authorities of Coventry and Solihull, as well as a small area around central and north east Birmingham.
