10 AND 12
(Formerly listed as:
28 AND 29)
An attached former house, of which the ground floor is used as shop premises. It has a late-C16 timber-framed core that was re-modelled in the C18, and again in the C19 when the roof was raised to create a top storey.
MATERIALS: it is constructed from red brick laid in a Flemish bond and coursed stone rubble. The roof is clad in slate roof and the parapet is capped with stone.
PLAN: it is roughly rectangular on plan with two wings and later additions to the rear.
EXTERIOR: the building is of three storeys and five bays. The front (north) has a stone plinth with stone skirting. The central doorway has a semi-circular arched head and a projecting gabled hood carried on consoles. Above the six-panelled door is a semi-circular fanlight. The entrance is flanked by shop fronts. The earlier, right-hand (west) one consists of three arched recesses with stucco margins, the central one with a plate-glass window; that to the right with a doorway; and to the left also has a plate-glass window. To the left (east) of the central entrance is a late-C19 shop front. There are fluted pilasters with consoles to each side of plain fascia, which is plain, and cast-iron colonettes separate the panes of window glass which flank a recessed doorway. The upper storeys of the building have a symmetrical arrangement of windows, with five six-over-six sashes at first floor, each with a flushed, camber-headed lintel of stucco, and a plain string course at sill level. The windows to the second floor are C19 and consist of three-over-three horned sashes set in slightly recessed sash boxes.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
HISTORY: Bromyard is a small market town that was first recorded in circa 840. Nos. 10 and 12 Broad Street is situated on one of the principal thoroughfares in the town adjoining the market square. 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.
Nos. 10 and 12 Broad Street is principally a C18 building. A study of historic buildings in Bromyard which was undertaken in 2009 has indicated that the building has a timber-framed core, possibly of late-C16 date. It was re-modelled, including being re-fronted in brick, in the C18 and was also altered in the C19 when the roof was raised to create a top storey.

REASONS FOR DESIGNATION: 10 and 12 Broad Street is designated at Grade II, for the following principal reasons:
* Architectural interest: a good survival of a timber-framed building which was aggrandised in the C18; its evolution can be read in the surviving historic elements
* Design: the façade retains some good C18 features with restrained classical detailing to the windows and door surround
* Group value: it has strong contextual interest, having group value with a large number of other listed buildings in Broad Street
