In 1892, Ledbury, Herefordshire held a design competition to build an Institute in honour of Barrett Browning. Brightwen Binyon beat 44 other designs for the Institute in Ledbury. The design was based on the timber-framed Market House, which was opposite the site. It was completed in 1896, although Nikolaus Pevsner was not impressed by its style. In 1938, it became a Public Library, now Grade II-listed since 2007.
