In pictures: Hexham is the happiest place to live in the UK

Hexham was voted the happiest place to live in Rightmove's 'Happy at Home' Index on Wednesday

On Wednesday, it was announced that Hexham was the happiest place to live in the UK.

With a centuries-old Abbey, the picturesque Sele Park, an 800 year old market place and cobbled streets lined with independent shops, it's not hard to see why the Northumberland town came top of the Rightmove Happy at Home index for the second time in three years.

The list takes into account friendliness and community spirit, whether people feel they can be themselves, nature and green spaces, opportunities locally to develop skills and amenities including school, restaurants, shops and sports facilities.

Here are some of the best photos of Hexham taken this week by Chronicle photographer Craig Connor.
