Workington Town >>

Workington away probably counted as Reading's longest trip. It is about 280 miles as the crow flies, and 315 miles by road. You may think you're nearly there on leaving the M6 at Penrith, but it's another hour down the A66. These sorts of things never helped when teams were up for re-election, and Workington failed to muster enough votes in 1977, being replaced by Wimbledon (which was much easier to reach).
