Daventry's Demography

Daventry's location.

Daventry is located in rural West Northamptonshire, near the border with Warwickshire. It had a population of 25,000 in 2011, and was formerly governed by Daventry District Council. The nearest other major settlements are Northampton, Banbury, Leamington Spa and Rugby.

Daventry residents tend to commute to Northampton, Banbury and Rugby, or other West Northamptonshire rural areas, such as Towcester and Brackley, according to Census data from 2011.

Commuting data

The main commuter hotspot for Daventry is Northampton – the largest town in Europe, with a population of almost 250,000.

As shown here, Northampton is the main inflow and outflow commuting hotspot. Rugby is a close 2nd, with Coventry being a large inflow, and South Northamptonshire (home to Brackley, Silverstone and Towcester) being a large outflow.

Cherwell, home to Banbury and Bicester, is also a major outflow.

Travel by train šŸš†

The data displayed to the left is much different if we filter itĀ just by train. In fact, as of 2011, only 174 people from the Daventry District (out of 70,000) commuted to London by train. For Birmingham, this is just 70.

These figures are too high, to the point where it’s scary to think where we could be in 10, or even 20 years, perhaps. So we’ve stepped in to ensure investment is made inĀ sustainableĀ transport infrastructure in Daventry town, and the wider area in West Northamptonshire.
