So happy in Hexham
THE Northumberland market town of Hexham has been crowned the happiest place to live in Britain.
Northern England made up half of the top 10 list compiled by Rightmove, with Harrogate, Skipton, Altrincham and Southport also appearing.
Richmond-upon-Thames, Dorchester and Sevenoaks were also in the top 10 as were Llandrindod Wells and Monmouth, both in Wales.
The survey asked residents about their views on local amenities, schools, shops and green spaces.
