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-).
