Interesting Place - Copeland

The borough of Copeland, is one of the few areas of the UK where house prices are still affordable.

(In fact, they are less than five times the average annual wage. In 1997, 72 local authorities – one in five – had average prices within easy reach of local homebuyers, now Copeland is the only one.

In its favour the area has thousands of relatively well-paid jobs. two thirds of it is in the Lake District National Park, and it has a 56 mile stretch of coastline.

Just one little thing, Sellafield is there, and the area hosts more than 70% of Britain's higher-activity radioactive waste.

A small price to pay for an affordable home, surely.)
