Royal Borough residents commute as far as Scilly Isles &  Scotland

A map detailing the distances that Britain's commute shows that people living in Windsor and Maidenhead travel as far as Scotland for work.

Based on data sourced from the 2011 census, the interactive diagram outlines the commuter patterns of people living in every local authority across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales - and with surprising results.

In the Royal Borough a total of 34,832 men and women travel out of the area for the work, to the majority of local authorities in Great Britain.

This includes the Scottish Highlands, which is apparently the workplace of one Royal Borough resident.

Six people work in Edinburgh, four in Aberdeenshire and two in Argyll and Bute.

The map shows that 11 people commute from the Royal Borough to Cornwall and the Scilly Isles.

It also shows that four people from the Royal Borough work in Ireland and about 10 people travel to Wales.

There is no information detailing how often these journeys are made and for what purpose.

The most popular commuter destination for Royal Borough residents is Slough, with 5,865 people going there to work.

This is closely followed by Hillingdon, Westminster and the City of London and the Wycombe District.

The number of people who commute from Slough to Maidenhead is 6,380.

A total of 37,051 commute into Maidenhead from across Great Britain but primarily from Slough, Wokingham, Bracknell, Reading and South Bucks.
