The door, which is slightly to the left of centre, is half-glazed with a moulded surround and pedimented hood, supported by shaped brackets.

HISTORY: Bromyard is a small market town that was first recorded in circa 840. No.14 Church Street is situated on one of the principal thoroughfares in the town, joining the church with the market square. It continues south into Sherford Street, and together they were known as Verterus Vicus in the late C13 and recorded as Shurford Streate in 1575. This central area of the town to the south 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.
