Blue Anchor


The Blue Anchor was situated at 52 Heath Street. The publican in 1895 was Joseph Hardwick.
Tony Clifford, in his book Barking Pubs Past And Present, has found reference to a Blue Anchor pub from 1609 to the late 19th century By 1910 it had become a hotel. The site is now a petrol station and when it was excavated in 1986 a tile and cobble mosaic floor decoration with part of the sign of the Rose and Thistle ale house dated 1614 was discovered but unfortunately was not preserved. The Blue Anchor may also have been known as The Anchor.
