Listing Text


815/1/159 BROAD STREET
36 AND 42

(Formerly listed as:

The house dates from the later C18, and is of red brick laid in Flemish bond, with brick stacks and slate roof.

EXTERIOR: The street frontage is three bays wide, the window openings having painted sills and rusticated flat arches with enriched and tabled keystones. There are 8-over-8 sash frames to the first floor, and 4-over-4 sash frames to the second floor. An early-C20 shop front has been inserted at first-floor level, set slightly forward from the facade. The shop front has a central doorway with another doorway set back in the centre of the eastern bay, and another - also set back - at the western edge of the frontage. The central and western doors have been replaced. The plate glass windows are surmounted by transom lights. The shopfront and central doorway are framed by fluted pilasters with panelled pointed caps. The stallriser is also panelled. The rear of the building is gabled.

INTERIOR: The interior has not been inspected.

Bromyard is a small market town that was first recorded in circa 840. The building now known as 36 and 42 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.

The building now known as 36 and 42 Broad Street dates from the later C18, with a shop front having been inserted in the C20.

The building known as Nos. 36 and 42 Broad Street, Bromyard, is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* ARCHITECTURAL: for the handsome and symmetrical Georgian frontage which survives above ground-floor level
* HISTORICAL: as a C18 town house with an early-C20 shop front of some interest; the evolution of the building is illustrative of the development of the area
* GROUP VALUE: with other listed buildings in Broad Street.
