Residents of the road had mixed views on the day, with loved up Lynne Price believing it should be celebrated, she said: “I think Valentine’s Day is a lovely romantic day.

“I have a partner and we always do something to celebrate it, sometimes we go to a nice restaurant for a meal. I think last year we celebrated it by going on holiday, but I can’t remember where.”

Another resident disagreed on the day, but found the street name endearing, he said: “I’m not really a fan of Valentine’s Day, me and my wife get each other a card every year but that’s all we do.

“All the streets in this area have odd names, someone told me they’re all to do with cattle but I also got told they were to do with flowers.”

Homeowner, Liz Jordan said: “I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day, it’s just another day to me. Although I really like the the name of the street because it's romantic."
