A SUBSTANTIAL former bank with "redevelopment potential" is up for sale in a Herefordshire town.

The former Lloyds bank in Bromyard's Broad Street is on the market with estate agents Sunderlands for offers in the region of £249,950.

The bank closed in October last year, with a spokesperson saying that visits to the branch had fallen in recent years, with many customers choosing to bank in different ways.

The agents said the substantial and extended two-storey freehold building, which has extensive street frontage, offers commercial or residential redevelopment potential, and is available with vacant possession.

The brick-built former bank has a series of single-glazed windows at ground and first floor level which have ornamental keystones while the main entrance door has an ornamental portico entrance with pillars and a stucco surround.


To the rear of the building are a couple of later single-storey additions probably dating from the mid/late 20th Century and there is a linking section that has an element of flat roof, Sunderlands said.

There is also a paved rear yard and a garden.

On the ground floor is a banking hall, offices, and a strongroom, as well as storage rooms and a toilet, while further storage is available in the cellar.

The upstairs of the building, approaches separately from Broad Street, seem to have last been occupied as two separately occupied office suites used by a dentist and accountant, Sunderlands said.

The dental surgery includes two consulting rooms, a waiting room, reception and office.

There is also a shared kitchen and toilet as well as a decontamination or storage room.

"These rooms have not been used for some time," Sunderlands said.

The other office includes three rooms and a store.
