Sussex market towns are among the most expensive in England, according to Lloyds Bank.
Lewes and Midhurst were ranked as the second and third most expensive market towns in the country, with an average house price of £408,641 in Lewes and £403,893 in Midhurst.
Market town house prices have increased by an incredible £460 every month, on average, over the last decade, while the study also found that prices in market towns were, on average, 11% more expensive than those in surrounding areas.
Mortgages director at Lloyds Bank, Andy Mason, said, “Homes in market towns typically command a significant premium over their neighbouring towns. The quality of life benefits often associated with living in such locations are still proving popular among home buyers.”
