The Anchor, Pyrford Lock
The pub was built in 1721 for canal workers and boatmen. According to local historians it takes its name from 'anker' an 8.5 gallon measurement of beer.

The pub was rebuilt in 1934. Stables used to rest the horses and mules working the Navigation were demolished and replaced with a large patio and conservatory.
