Windsor's historic Crooked House is up for sale - almost a year after the previous leaseholders were evicted after a battle with the owner.

The Crooked House - also known as Market Cross House - is one of the most famous buildings in Windsor High Street thanks to its famous tilt.

It was first constructed in 1592.  But its famous tilt follows its being rebuilt 100 years later with unseasoned green wood.

It breathes history, even boasting a secret passage in the basement supposedly used for trysts between Nell Gwynne and Charles or less romantically for delivering produce from the market to the kitchens of Windsor Castle.

It has previously housed a jewellers, brewery, antiques shop, gift shop and for the last 30 years a tea room.

It has been closed since last December after the previous leaseholders were evicted following a court battle.

The longstanding owner Molly Cowan said then that the building needed repair work and now the newly refurbished building is up for sale at a cost of £1.25million.

Property consultants Kempton Carr Croft are handling the sale.

Details of the 954 sq ft building can be viewed on Kempton Carr Croft's website, while interested parties can contact the company on
