Bromyard Local History Centre
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The ground floor has a reception area and a shop selling local maps, books, and postcards, with an adjoining exhibition area which offers changing exhibits of local interest throughout the year. The Society maintains an extensive collection of historical local photographs, and these can be explored using an interactive computer display, and copies of old photos can be printed on the spot to be taken away.
The first floor is devoted to the historical archives maintained by the Society, which should prove an invaluable resource to anyone with an interest in local genealogy or history.
The Society also offers an ongoing programme of events, including illustrated lectures, guided outings, and social occasions. Recent events include a celebration of the centenary of the Morgan motorcar, and a guided walk through historic Bromyard. They also publish an annual journal full of local history articles, and a series of local history booklets, which are for sale in the shop on the ground floor.
NB. Don't confuse the Local History Centre with the Bromyard Heritage Centre on Rowberry Street, which focusses on the history of hops and hop picking in the area.
