There’s no place like ‘our’ home!

Welshpool is the fifth best market town in Wales, according to a study carried out by Royal Mail.

The study tells those of us lucky enough to live in this great area something that we have always known, but it is still nice to have official confirmation!

The findings are based on a number of categories including average earnings, house prices, access to services, crime figures, skill level of the local population and unemployment figures. Data from the 2011 UK Census was also used.

Denbigh, in the north, takes the top place scoring consistently above average across various measures of work-life balance particularly for short commuting distances and working hours. Mold takes second place where low unemployment and short working hours make up for weaker school scores.

Moving south of the country, Usk takes third place thanks in particular to good schools and low crime. Welshpool scored well for relatively affordable housing, low unemployment and good school scores.

Builth Wells (4th), Ruthin (6th), Monmouth (7th), Flint (8th), Dolgellau (9th) and Carmarthen (10th) also feature in the top ten.
