815/1/197 HIGH STREET

(Formerly listed as:

Shop with flats above. Early C19 with late-C19 shop front.

MATERIALS: Probably brick with stucco to front; pitched slate roof.

PLAN: The building is double-depth on plan and of two storeys; with the front range running parallel to the street, with a perpendicular range to the rear.

EXTERIOR: The building is of two storeys. It has a two-window front (north-east). There are two eight-over-eight pane sashes in recessed surrounds with projecting cills to the first floor. The ground floor has a late-C19 double shop front with plate-glass windows divided by glazing bars. It has a recessed central doorway with three-quarters glazed door, with single-pane strip overlight. There is a second solid door to the far right with a fanlight and decorative moulded corbels and cornice. A fascia runs the width of the windows, terminating in carved console brackets. There are bowed, fluted pilasters to either side of the windows. The shop front beneath the windows is in viridian tiles with bowed ends.

INTERIOR: Not inspected.

HISTORY: Bromyard is a small market town that was first recorded in circa 840. No. 15 High Street is situated on one of the principal thoroughfares in the town which was known as Novus Vicus in the late C13 and recorded as Newe Streate in 1575. The street appears to have been fully built up by the early C17, though some of the plots have been re-developed since that time.

REASON FOR DESIGNATION: No. 15 High Street, an early C19 building with later shop front is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Architectural: an early-C19 building of special interest for its proportions, sash windows and shop front
* Intactness: a substantially-intact late-Georgian building with a little altered, Victorian shop-front
* Group Value: with its immediate neighbours and many other listed buildings elsewhere in the High Street
