HISTORY: Bromyard is a small market town that was first recorded in circa 840. No. 7 High Street is situated on one of the principal thoroughfares in the town which was known as Novus Vicus in the late C13 and recorded as Newe Streate in 1575. 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.
REASON FOR DESIGNATION: No. 7 High Street is designated at Grade II for the following principal reason:
* Architectural: a well-preserved example of a modest, but pleasant urban building with restrained classical detail
* Intactness: a substantially intact late C18 facade with later shop front which is sympathetic in character to the rest of the building
* Group Value: with many other listed buildings elsewhere in the High Street
