Crooked House of Windsor

Crooked House of Windsor

The Crooked House of Windsor (also known as the Market Cross House) in Windsor, England is a British building constructed in 1592. The building now stands at a marked angle, having been rebuilt with green wood in 1718.

There is a secret passage in the basement, supposedly used for illicit trysts between Nell Gwynn and Charles II and/or delivering produce from the market to the kitchens of Windsor Castle.
