Broad Street ran north-south from All Hallows, London Wall to Threadneedle Street and
to a Pumpe ouer against Saint Bennets church(Stow). Broad Street, labelled
Brode Streaton the Agas map, was entirely in Broad Street Ward. The street’s name was a reference to its width and importance (Harben). In Stow’s Survey, Broad Street serves as the main road to many of the ward’s more interesting monuments, halls, and houses. Part of Broad Street, from Throgmorton Street to Threadneedle Street later became known as Little Broad Street.
