INTERIOR: ground floor altered, otherwise not inspected. HISTORICAL NOTE: in 1560 wealthy merchant Robert Yowle, the owner of this property, then known as the Antelope Inn, left it and other property in his will to the city of Worcester to set up a fund for poor relief. In 1562 and 1574 extensive work was carried out, and an extension added in 1578. Hughes notes that 'behind the present .. facade lie the remains of this earlier structure. The store room .. contains .. roof trusses of clasped purlin construction and a further timber framed range runs along the east of the yard behind.'Further, '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. One of these was on the site of No.57.' Several other houses on Broad Street are known to have C17 and earlier origins (Nos 32, 40 and 41 (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).
