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 in Broad Street
are known to have C17 and earlier origins (Nos 32, 40, 41 and 57
(qqv).

All the listed buildings in Broad Street form a significant
group: Nos 10, 10A, 11, 12, 18, 19, 29, 32-36 (consecutive), 40,
41, 43-49 (consecutive), 51-63 (consecutive), 69, 70, and Church
of All Saints (qqv). Nos 57 and 58 shared the same former PRN but
were itemised separately. (Hughes P: No.57 Broad Street,
Worcester: Report for Worcester City Council: 1991-).
