Crewe and Nantwich

Crewe and Nantwich is one of six districts in the county of Cheshire, England. The Borough of Crewe and Nantwich was created in the local government reorganisation of 1974 from the industrial town of Crewe which was established in the 1830s with the arrival of the railways who created a major locomotive construction and maintenance works there, and the much smaller and wealthier market town of Nantwich and its' surrounding countryside where agriculture (principally dairy farming) is the main activity.

There is also a Parliamentary constituency of Crewe and Nantwich, which has been held since its creation in 1983 for the Labour Party by Gwyneth Dunwoody. Note that the borders of the parliamentary constituency are not quite contiguous with those of the Borough.
