7 Peas Hill

History of 7 Peas Hill

A three storey house with walls of plastered timber framing and red brick. It was built in the first half of the 18th century incorporating parts of the framed walling of an earlier building at the western end. The rooms inside have original panelling. (1959 Royal Commission on Historical Monuments Survey of Cambridge)

24/11/1911 John Stanley, poulterer of Peas Hill sued the G.E.R. Company for damages sustained in the carriage of 84 ducklings and three geese from Liverpool Street to Cambridge. They were to have been sent by passenger train the same day. But instead they were taken on to Doncaster. He made numerous inquiries but it was not until 9pm that the birds arrived at the station but the GER could not deliver them until Monday, by which time they would have been bad. But he had an old contract that said the goods were sent at his risk and he lost his case. (Cam.News)
