The research, conducted by PlumbNation, analysed the figures on average property prices compared to the average size of a home in each area around the country.

Burnley came second, behind only the Welsh borough of Blaenau Gwent as the least expensive local authority for homebuyers, with a square metre of property costing just £1,268 on average.

The least expensive English authority is Burnley, which is actually the cheapest place in the country when it comes to average house prices in general, at £112,394. Combined with an average property size of 88 square metres, this equals a cost per square foot of just £1,277, which is over 20 times lower than some parts of central London.
