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)). Ground floor forms one continuous unit with No.54 (qv).
All the listed buildings in Broad Street form a significant

(consecutive), 40, 41, 43-49 (consecutive), 51-63 (consecutive),
