Chatham

Crown and Anchor

The Licensing Records of 1872 stated that the building had burnt down, but up to that time had been operating under a Full license.

There is suggestion that at one time the pub was called the "Malt Shovel" and perhaps this was the "Malt Shovel" before the fire; if this is the case then there must have been another pub with the same name of the "Crown and Anchor".

I believe this building was demolished some time in the 1970s as the Pembroke Court buildings have been erected on the same spot by 1984.

Also certain confusion come into play when the road was renumbered and the location today is addressed 397 High Street
