London, Dec 30 (ANI): A study has revealed Britain's most fertile town, and it is Weybridge in Surrey where the women are more likely to fall pregnant than in any other area.

The study, carried out by parenting website Gurgle.com, found that they take an average of just three months to conceive, compared to the UK average of six months.

Based on the number of pregnancies by population and the average time taken to conceive, official statistics show Weybridge's birth rate shot up by 20 percent between 2002 and 2008 - and is still rising.

The town is part of the posh Elmbridge district, named this week as Britain's best place to live.

Jersey is the second most fertile area, followed by the tiny village of Winkleigh, Devon.

Women in Brighton fall pregnant the fastest - with many conceiving in the first month of trying, but they have fewer pregnancies than other top ten towns.

Eight of the ten most fertile areas are in the South, and all are outside the major cities.

"It seems the less frantic pace of life outside big cities helps couples conceive," the Sun quoted Gurgle.com editor Nifa McLaughlin as saying. (ANI)
