Hebden Bridge ranked in 20th place, with an overall score of 29.38, as a result of its 10 mountains and hills, one heritage location and six beauty spots.

Topping the list was Keswick in Cumbria with a score of 70.59 followed by Whitby in North Yorkshire with a score of 63.97.

Explaining the method a spokesperson said: "We took a seed list of the most beautiful towns and villages in the UK from loveexploring.com and countryliving.com, and then gathered data on a number of different factors.

"Instagramability was taken from the number of photos uploaded using each location’s relevant hashtag on Instagram, the number of attractions, green spaces, and beauty spots were taken from Trip Advisor, and heritage spots in the county and number of mountains and hills in the county were both taken from Wikipedia.
