25 Magdalene Street, Cross Keys Inn

History of 25 Magdalene Street

25 Magdalene Street west range

1959 Royal Commission on Historical Monuments Survey of Cambridge: once the Cross Keys Inn, of three storeys to the street and two storeys with cellars westward, has plastered timber-framed walls and tiled roofs. It is L-shaped on plan. The long W range is of the early 16th cent., the street range of the early 17th cent….Nos 25 and 25a comprise a notable time-framed town house of the early 17th cent. with a late mediaeval rear wing; the street front though simpler than that of no.14 Trinity Street is much less restored… the panelling from the N first floor room in the street range is now in the Small Combination Room at Magdalene College.
