Rose (Cambridge)

According to L&M the Rose fronted on Market Hill, had its carriage entrance in Trinity St. and was next door to the Angel. It ceased to ne an inn c. 1814. Nothing remains of its buildings, but the modern Rose Crescent marks the site of its yard and approaches. J.W.Clark and A. Gray, Old Plans...of Cambridge, pl. vi; R. Comm. Hist. Mon. City of Cambridge, ii. 330. (L&M)
