Bromsgrove first shows up in British documented history around the early 9th century. In its early years it was a farming community that focused on pig farming and hunting. In 1200, the town was given permission to host a weekly market. By 1317, they added on a 3 day August fair and the town thrived. By the late Middle Ages, wool production was in full swing in Bromsgrove. In 1841, the railway arrived, and this opened up a wave of new business opportunities, including a steam engine manufacturing facility. Today the local economy is driven by light manufacturing, and many businesses have set up their offices in the town's business parks.
