HOME­BUY­ERS spend al­most £23,000 more to live in a mar­ket town in Eng­land, ac­cord­ing to lat­est re­search from Lloyds TSB.

House prices in mar­ket towns across Eng­land are 11 per cent higher than their county av­er­age.

Bea­cons­field in Buck­ing­hamshire has the largest pre­mium with houses trad­ing at 163 per cent above the av­er­age house price in the county. Bakewell has the next high­est at 123 per cent above the Der­byshire av­er­age, fol­lowed by Wetherby where prop­er­ties cost al­most twice as much com­pared with the rest of West York­shire.

Fer­ry­hill in Durham is the least ex­pen­sive mar­ket town in Eng­land with an av­er­age house price of £75,000 and the only town with av­er­age prices be­low £100,000.
