Chilvers Coton

Chilvers Coton is an area of the town of Nuneaton in Warwickshire, England, around one mile south of the town centre. Chilvers Coton was historically a village and civil parish in its own right and was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as “Celverdestoche,”. The author Mary Ann Evans (better known as George Eliot) lived at Griff House in the parish between 1820 and 1841. Chilvers Coton was the inspiration for the fictional village of Shepperton in Eliot's novel Scenes of Clerical Life. Like neighbouring Nuneaton, Chilvers Coton historically was a centre for the weaving and coal mining industries
