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 and 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). (Hughes P:
No.57 Broad Street, Worcester: Report for Worcester City Council:
