Three points are worthy of note about this article and how readers voted :

Firstly, out of a choice of thirty favourites, Blaenau Ffestiniog came in the Top Ten, and was also forth in a list of the seven top postal votes.
Secondly, this response was from a newspaper based not in the Blaenau area, but in South Wales.
thirdly, the headline description of Blaenau as “a work of art” was the newspaper’s choice of words and not mine.

So altogether, I think this shows very clearly that in it’s present unchanged form Blaenau is already highly rated nationally.
