History of St Peter's Vicarage

Approx. location

In Vanishing Cambridge by Mike Petty, there is an excerpt p.49 from T D Atkinson, Old House in Cambridge, 1908 – PCAS vol.13: This is a house of, perhaps, some 130 to 150 years old. It is now divided into three cottages [nos 9, 10 & 11 Mount Pleasant] the middle and eastern ones containing features of interest. The lower front room of the centre cottage is of panelled oak, with pictures painted on the frame-like panels. … It has been erected on the edge of the sloping bank which formed the defence, on the western side, of the enclosure of the Norman Castle. The road outside runs along the bottom of the ancient fosse.
