INTERIOR: Not inspected

HISTORY: Bromyard is a small market town that was first recorded in circa 840. No. 29 Old Road is situated on one of the principal thoroughfares in the town, which runs east from the vicarage and church. It is a continuation of Cruxwell Street, which was known as Corkeswalle Vicus in the late C13 and recorded as Croxewalle Streate in 1575. It becomes Old Road at the junction with the High Street and was known as Sheep Street in the early C20. This central area of the town to the west and south of the church appears to have been fully built up by the early C17, though some of the plots have been re-developed since that time. The main range of No. 29 Old Road dates from the C17 and was subsequently extended to the rear.

REASON FOR DESIGNATION: No. 29 Old Road, a C17 timber framed dwelling is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Architectural: an attractive arrangement on the principal facade, with exposed, well-executed timber framing
* Intactness: the exterior is largely unaltered and it retains the greater proportion of its pre-1700 structural fabric
* Historic: a good example of the local vernacular architecture
