(Formerly listed as:

An early-C19 dwelling of two storeys and one bay. It is orientated parallel with Old Road and has a gabled extension to the rear. It is brick with a stone plinth, slate roof and brick chimney stack.

EXTERIOR: At ground-floor level the principal facade has a door to the left and window to the right. The door has fielded panels, the two at the top are glazed. It has a moulded door-case with pilasters and pediment. The window is a canted bay with four-over-four hornless sashes and two-over-two sashes to the returns. There is a window at first-floor level in line with the ground floor; it is a four-over-four sash with an exposed frame flush with the facade, and a painted flat arch. There is a string course below each of the two windows. There is a cornice with widely-spaced dentils at the eaves. There is a chimney stack at either end of the pitched roof which is shared with the adjacent buildings.

INTERIOR: Not inspected.

Bromyard is a small market town that was first recorded in circa 840. No. 12 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 turns into Old Road at the junction with the High Street and it was known as Sheep Street in the early C20. This central area of the town to the south and west of the church and around the market place appears to have been fully built up by the early C17, though some of the plots have been re-developed since that time.
