Tag someone who would love to visit Windsor Castle and this place - the Crooked House of Windsor! Was lovely seeing it on the telly during the Royal Wedding this weekend. It was built in 1592 at the edge of the town’s market square and was originally named Market Cross House. . In 1687, the town council ordered the house to be demolished in order to make way for the neighboring Guildhall. A land dispute erupted over the lot and the council was eventually ordered by the court to rebuild the dwelling in its original spot. The house was re-built with haste, and possibly without care, using unseasoned green oak wood. When the wood dried, the house buckled but it stood its ground. Since then Market Cross House became known as the Crooked House of Windsor. . *But the intrigue doesn’t end with the slanted floors & walls. Multiple reports state that the basement housed a secret passage to Windsor Castle – the Royal Family’s official residence. The clandestine tunnel was allegedly used for rendezvous between naughty King Charles II and his mistress Nell Gwyn. The saucy sausage! . Now they say the passage’s “official” purpose was to be a supply hauling tunnel for the Castle’s kitchen – moving fresh produce from the market. But which do you believe?
