An ancient road of medieval origin, previously called Green Lane and for a time Garnet Street before being rebranded Broadway in 1875. Two classic pubs, the Royal Oak and the Clifton Hotel, remain at either end but many have now gone.  The old Broadway Methodist church building was destroyed in a fire in 1989.

He opened the shop at 10 Broadway in 1912 which was initially a laundry shop in the 1922 Cardiff Directory but by the following year was described as a Cycle Agent and Dealer. The 1958 Directory similarly described 10 Broadway was Arth.T.Webber, Cycle Agent.  The shop closed in 1971. (photo credit: John Webber, grandson).
