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)). 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). Nos 69 and
70 also form a group with Nos 31 and 32 The Cross and with Nos
61-65 (consecutive) High Street (qqv). (Hughes P: No.57 Broad
Street, Worcester: Report for Worcester City Council: 1991-).
