Broadway a village of honey coloured stone, lies at the bottom of a steep escarpment. The street through Broadway was an ancient Ridgeway and the main road from Worcestershire to London. It remains a wide street or ‘broad way’ hence the name.
The village grew up as a stage coach shop and at the centre of Broadway is The Lygon Arms, a traditional inn, rich in history and charm. The Lygon Arms and other inns were there to supply fresh horses for coaches for the long steep haul up the hill.
