Slough c-enaudio=en-uk-Slough.oggˈslaʊ is a borough and unitary authority within the ceremonial county of Berkshire, England. The town straddles the Great West Road and the Great Western Main Line, 22 mi (35.4 km) west of central London. At the 2001 census, the population of Slough was 119,070 (est. 122,000 in 2006) and the borough area was the most ethnically diverse local authority area outside London in the United Kingdom.
