Overview | Historical info | Public transport | Map

The pub is also listed as the Anchor, at 33 & 35 Bell Lane in 1861. In 1861 it's listed at 33 & 35 Bell Lane, next to Little Wonder at 29 & 31 on the opposite side of road to the Good Intent. (Another Anchor is listed at 1 & 3 Bell Lane in 1861, with the Old Bell [unnamed] probably listed at 2 & 4 Dock Street.)

It seems likely it's been demolished, though we don't have a concrete location yet.

The closure date is recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923.
