Anchor Bankside

34 Park Street, Southwark, London, SE1 9EF

The first official record of the Anchor Bankside, Southwark was made in 1822, however, other records tell of a more macabre past. As well as being the site of a Roman grave and a venue that held bear and bull baiting pits, the site on which the Anchor lies was also allegedly used for plague pits during 1603.

Situated on one of the most historical reaches of the Thames, the Anchor lays claim to fascinating, and some what gruesome historical associations.
