Road to romance


3:14pm 5th February 2013


North Yorkshire is apparently home to two of Britain's most romantic place names.

Lovesome Hill near Northallerton and Wedding Hall Fold near Lothersdale are on a Top 10 list compiled by AA Route Planner.

Its survey suggests that many places have a romantic connection in their past, but the real history behind the names is long forgotten.

Nigel Philips, from AA Route Planner, said: "So many place names in the UK are quaint and quirky and AA Route Planner can help any romantics out there find the best place to take their loved one for a Valentine's treat."

The Top 10 romantic place names:

1.   Lovesome Hill near Northallerton
2.   Lover in Wiltshire
3.   Heart's Delight in Kent
4.   Loversall near Doncaster
5.   Loves Green in Essex
6.   Lovington in Somerset
7.   Love Clough in Lancashire
8.   Lovedean in Hampshire
9.   Lovegroves in Basingstoke
10. Wedding Hall Fold near Lothersdale
