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.
