London is all over the place. Large falls in Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster. Large rise in the City but that was only based on 13 sales!

I'm probably being a bit dim but is the quarterly figure shown "annualised" in some way, i.e. the quarterly figure multiplied by 4?

who would want to live in Rytland? How would you get out?

does it have a rail link to Grimsby? or Scumfawk?

Well, you could use the A1, as it runs right through Rutland. Or pop down to Peterborough which is 15 minutes away and catch the train into King's Cross which takes about 40 minutes.

Oldham £116,235 -11.5% -10.5% 310

How can you be down 11% in a quiarter but only 10% over a year? I've obviously put my blonde head on today

Low numbers of transactions = noisy data.

Well obviously you could have had price rises in the previous 3 quarters that make up the year. (I know this seems unlikely, but is mathematically possible).

Quite right most of the numbers people cling to are entirely spurious, it should be illegal to publish them as fact such is the low base they are worked out on... prices are falling, but theres no set of data out there from anyone thats reliable regionally let alone by postcode or city or district... my own view is the national figures are just as muddled. Interesstingly though only nationwide partially recognises this by placing a health warning on its regional figures.

So where can I get the data for previous quarters?

Thanks for your posts RB. :)

Interesting to see Portsmouth on list. Down 17.4% pa. 11.10 % per quarter.

Portsmouth in the relagation zone soon to be followed by bankrupt Southampton.

Both areas very dependent on retailing and services.

Both Ports and Soton very badly affected in last recession.

Good bell wethers for South of England.

Hey, I'm originally from Rutland.. It's a great place!

Agreed.. Rutland is the smallest county in the UK, and Anglesey isn't exactly large or densely populated.
