Devil's Bridge, Kirkby LonsdaleKirkby Lonsdale is officially one of the best places to live in the country…..

Our historic market town on the border of three countries – Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire – is one of nine places in the North of England to make the ‘Top 50 Best Places to Live in the Countryside’ list compiled by The Sunday Times.

The guide combines the local knowledge and expertise of Sunday Times writers along with data and statistics in areas such as crime rates and transport links.

Home Editor for the Sunday Times, Helen Davies said: “Britain is home to some of the most idyllic – and wild – countryside, and this supplement is dedicated to celebrating the very best of rural life. We worked carefully to compile a list which combines statistical analysis with personal experience and Sunday Times expertise to create our top 50.”
