A VILLAGE near Burton has been named as one of the top 12 best places to live in the Midlands.
Abbots Bromley is now sitting alongside the likes of Malvern, Worcestershire, Hereford, Herefordshire and Shrewsbury, Shropshire as it was named in the The Sunday Times Best Places to Live, published in The Sunday Times.
The two-part guide will take a wide range of elements into account including transport links, quality of schools, natural beauty, low crime rate, property prices, cultural life and unemployment figures. Each area is also assessed on its own individual assets, whether it is a local festival, fascinating architecture or proximity to an airport.
The Sunday Times Best Places to Live will run across two weekends on Sunday and March 24 in The Sunday Times Home, with an overall national winner being announced in the first issue.
