second only to High Street in commercial importance. On the
direct route through the city from the (Worcester) Bridge (qv),
it contained the business premises of a number of important
traders and at least two inns'. Several houses on Broad Street
are known to have C17 and earlier origins (Nos 32, 40, 41 and 57
(qqv)).
