But it is in West Yorkshire where the top five coolest neighbourhoods are encompassed.

Oakworth Road and West Lane in Keighley ranks as number one, it is then followed by Kings Cross in Halifax, Keighley Central and East, Pellon East in Halifax and Girlington in west Bradford.

The coldest neighbourhoods are ranked by metrics that contribute to cost of living, which include consumption and fuel prices compared with data on incomes.

Environmental organisation Friends of the Earth compiled the top 50 list using these calculations and highlighted Britain’s energy crisis hotspots.

Within these hotspots, the coldest neighbourhoods are identifiable through the Performance Certificate (EPC) statistics, which show the average energy efficiency rating for homes from A to G. Below is how they ranked.

As the temperature starts to drop, Britain is currently grappling with a shocking cost of living crisis, which is expected to get worse and drag on for more than a year.

Punters are trying all sorts of hacks to keep their costs down during winter.

But as times get harder, the Government has offered a lending hand to try to see people through the cooler months.

As the second part of cost of living payments started to rollout last month, pensioners are being urged to check if they are eligible for a cheque worth £324.
