He is also optimistic about 2012: “Central London prices are now so high that the ripple outwards is making itself felt in the major provincial Cathedral cities – York and Bath are notable in feeling this gain. And we have noticed a flurry of overseas interest too since the New Year; buyers from Europe and the Far East seem to have North Yorkshire in their sights”
