Anchor and Hope

Status: Closed and demolished
Address: 8 Shadwell Dock Street, E1 (streetmap) (osm) (gmap) (bingmap) (streetview)
Note: The location on these maps is approximate.
London borough: Tower Hamlets
Former name(s): [or Hope and Anchor]
Former address: [also listed as 26 New Street]
Historical parish: Shadwell
Dates open: by 1794-at least 1851
Notes: Location on the map is a guess. I believe this street ran between New Gravel Lane (now Garnet Street) and the end of Lower Shadwell (which no longer exists, but would have been approximately where the modern Glamis Road crosses the entrance to the Shadwell Basin); it ran along the north side of the Shadwell Old Basin, and both the street and the pub would have been demolished for the construction of the Shadwell New Basin in the 1850s.
