Anchor Passage

The twitten Anchor Passage takes its name from the Anchor Inn which, between 1834 and 1905, stood at the top of the passage between 5 & 6 East Ascent[1]. In the late 19th century there were reports of the steps leading up to the Anchor Inn being dangerous and needing repair and another, which stated the footpath needed re-paving.The passageway was closed off by means of two gates appearing at either end of the passageway in 2002 which led to an inquiry as to whether the twitten was a legitimate public 'right of way'. Upon the inquiry results being appealed in 2016, the passageway was formally declared a public right of way[2]
