LEDBURY has been named as one of the best places to live in the Midlands, according to The Sunday Times.

Judges assessed a wide range of factors, from schools, transport and broadband speed to culture, green spaces and the health of the high street to reach their verdict.

They visit locations and speak to locals as they look for improving places, for attractive, well designed homes, and locations bursting with community spirit.

Helen Davies, The Sunday Times Home editor said, "Our advice is simple. Think about everything you love and everything you hate, then make sure you have access to the good things while minimising exposure to the bad ones.

"Never has where you live felt more important. This year we have, along with house prices, air quality, good schools and access to green spaces."
