HISTORY: Bromyard is a small market town that was first recorded in circa 840. No. 8 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, although some of the plots have been re-developed since that time. No. 8 is a C17 building that has been re-fronted at a later date. It has a ground-floor shop front, probably of mid-C20 date.
