Busy in Bromyard
The picturesque market town of Bromyard is often referred to as ‘the town of festivals’ and can be found nestled in the valley of the River Frome in the east of Herefordshire. The town has a number of beautiful timber-framed buildings and is just one hundred and thirty miles from the Medusa Juice Vape Shop in Peterborough. So, while visiting the town you’re just a short drive away from checking out the amazing selection of e-liquids. And while at our store be sure to take a look at our range of accessories as well as the new clothing line for more great deals. I highly recommend visiting one of the Medusa Juice Vape Shops regularly to keep up to date with the latest offers, contests and new additions to our collection.
Bromyard can trace its history back to Anglo-Saxon times when the Bishop of Hereford had a manor in the area. The village is referred to by name in the 9th century when a monastery was founded in the valley with the permission of King Behrtwulf, King of the Mercians.
By the time of the Domesday Book, the village was one of the largest communities in Herefordshire. But by the 17th century the population had been surpassed by neighbouring towns and it remained a modest and picturesque community.
During the Civil War, Bromyard supported the Royalists and King Charles I stayed in the town on his way to Hereford in 1645. When Parliamentarian Forces attempted to take control of Herefordshire a number of battles took place near Bromyard, most notably at Ledbury and Castle Frome.
Bromyard was a successful market town for centuries, making it’s living from the sale of local produce. In the 18th century Bromyard operated a lucrative toll road but by the 19th century the town’s fortunes had flagged a little as there was a decline in trade. This loss of merchant traffic occurred after the town wasn’t connected to the new railway network as quickly as its neighbours and the town was also late to take advantage of the industrial revolution.
When the first World War broke out Bromyard was the site of an internment camp where the future Lord Mayor of Cork, Terence MacSwiney was interned. During World War II Bromyard Downs, just outside the town was home to two Auxiliary Unit Operational Bases. These underground bunkers were used by the British Resistance Organisation, secret military units set up during the war to fight back in the event of a successful German invasion.
Bromyard has been a centre for the hop growing industry for years and remains so to this day. The town even has a Hop Festival dedicated to the important cultural and economic heritage of hop growing in the area. The event attracts around five thousand visitors to Bromyard each year and is just one of many festivals held in the town.
