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, lOA, 11 with the Crown Inn, 12, 18, 19, 29, 32-36 (consecutive), 40, 41, 43-49 (consecutive), 51-63 (consecutive), 69, 70 with Church of All Saints (qqv). The 1971 List describes No. 1 Angel Place as being rebuilt.
