Rugby will forever be associated with the game, created it is said when William Webb Ellis with "a fine disregard for the rules of football" picked up the ball and ran with it. The rest, as they say is history. He was a pupil of Rugby School which still operates in the centre of the town today - and even allows girls. What would Tom Brown - its most famous, albeit fictitious, pupil say? Rugby is famous for more than just its sport and its school. Rugby Cement is known the world over, using the natural resource of limestone to be found in this part of Warwickshire. Cemex operates its plant on the edge of town and its offices are in the town centre.

Rugby is also famed as an engineering centre and Sir Frank Whittle, inventor of the jet engine, can be numbered among its famous sons. BTH, for whom he worked, still exists today but has now become Alstom. It employs around 1,000 people on its site on Newbold Road. And there's one other famous icon for which Rugby is known: its rail station. Just one hour out of London, most people have 'passed through' Rugby even if they haven't visited the town. It is now operated by Virgin trains and remains one of the busiest rail junctions in the UK.
Rugby has always been a town almost literally at the heart of the UK. First via the canal network at Hillmorton (still important as part of the leisure industry), then through the rail station established to the south of the town and finally via the M-way network. Rugby sits at Junction One of the M6, J19 of the M1 and also next to the M45 and A5. So it's no surprise that it's now a major warehousing and distribution centre for many national and international firms. DIRFT (Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal) is a rail-connected warehouse estate between Rugby and the M1 offering jobs in the distribution sector.
