PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Paul Skelton

Earliest 1740-

Blue Anchor

Latest 1740+

Littlebourne

 

Only reference found so far is in the Wingham Division Ale Licence list, which shows the "Blue Anchor" to be re-licensed for the sum of 8 shillings in 1740 indicating that the pub was present before 1740.

It is unknown whether it is connected with the "Anchor," although that pub is reputed to be the oldest in the village, going back to the 16th century, so this one may have changed name at some point, dropping the "Blue" from its title.
