HISTORICAL NOTE: 'By the sixteenth century, Broad Street was
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)). However the design of these two houses relates more
closely to the adjacent terraces in Bridge Street, Nos 2-13
(consecutive) and Nos 14-22 (consecutive) (qqv).

All the listed buildings in Broad Street form a significant
group: Nos 10, 10A, 11 with the Crown Inn, 12, 18, 19, 29, 32-36
(consecutive), 40, 41, 43-49 (consecutive), 51-63 (consecutive),
69, 70 and Church of All Saints (qqv). Nos 29, 32-36
(consecutive) and the Church form a further group with Nos 2-22
(consecutive) Bridge Street with No.2 Quay Street (qqv). Occupies
an important site at the entry to one of the main Worcester
thoroughfares. (Hughes P: No.57 Broad Street, Worcester: Report
for Worcester City Council: 1991-).
