Cross Inn, Cornmarket

That this inn existed, we can thank an entry in the Civil War diary of Henry Townshend, dated June 13, 1646, describing the great seige of Worcester:'the enemy shot off 13 cannons plating chiefly against St.Martin's Church, the Cross Inn and houses near, did not hurt no person, but shattered houses, especially the Crodd Inn, and one shot into the window of St. Martin's Church and so broke some seats.'
