We took this photo a couple of weeks ago on a freezing cold day in Catherine Street, Frome and with such a romantic setting I had to wait and blog this one on Valentine's day!
On the night of the 14th February every year Frome has a Valentine Lamp lighting ceremony. The lamp is believed to be the only working gas lamp in Somerset. The lamp is set into a heart-shaped cobbled surround and is hand-painted with hearts and flowers and attached is a George V posting box. It is dedicated to St. Valentine, patron and protector of all who find love.
The site received dedication and a blessing on the 14th February 1993 with a lamp lighting ceremony on Valentine Day.
Happy Valentine's Day!
