Twenty five years ago, in 1986, there were ten public houses in the village of Kinver. With the closure of the Crown & Anchor, the number has halved to five. The five which have ceased trading have all been converted into or replaced with housing. The others were The Elm Tree, The New Rose & Crown (The Spring), The Old Plough, and The George & Dragon.

The Crown & Anchor was a pub for around a hundred years or more. It is shown in the 1911 census as The Crown & Anchor Inn. It is located some way from the centre of Kinver, where most tourists visit, so this probably contributed to its demise. The building has some interesting pub-related features, which I thought worth recording, as I don't know if these will be preserved during the conversion to six flats, which is currently underway.

I have placed the pub in square SO8484, as the front part of the pub, which I have photographed, is in this. The back of the building, and most of the car park, is in SO8384. The pub, when still trading, can be seen in this photo by Row17:- SO8384 : The Crown & Anchor.
