Jesus Lane

History of Jesus Lane

According to Royal Commission on Historical Monuments Survey of Cambridge 1959:

The N. street-frontage of Jesus lane was already in part built up between Bridge Street and the Fellows’ Garden of Jesus College late in the 16th century (see J Hammond’s view of Cambridge 1692). In the twentieth century some buildings were demolished to make way for Wesley House. The only houses now in Jesus Lane with any substantial parts earlier than c. 1800 are ‘Little trinity’ and No.32.
