The Ship & Lobster, Denton, seen from the Saxon Shore Way
The Ship & Lobster is known as the first and last pub on the Thames. It has changed its name several times, originally being The Ship, then The Chalk Wharf followed by The Lobster before finally becoming the Ship & Lobster in 1832. This reflected the rise of the shrimping and shellfish trade which developed on the river as Gravesend became a popular resort for day trippers on paddle steamers from London. The Ship is thought to have inspired the waterfront tavern, The Ship, where Pip hides Magwitch, the escaped convict, for the night to await a ship to the continent.
