Ship Inn

Date of photo: 1868

Picture source: Carl Chinn Collection

The Ship Inn was situated at the junction of Sandy Lane and Camp Hill. Originally known as The Anchor, this pub was extant in the 1570s. The building was used as the headquarters of Prince Ruperts army in 1643. Demolished in 1867 and rebuilt on the same site, the replacement pub lasted until the 1970s when it too was demolished to make way for road replacement works. The Camp Hill Circus traffic island now occupies the site.
