The Blue Anchor, Hoylake in 1988.
Shortly after this was taken, I was told that the anchor was painted red overnight. I don't know who or why, but one theory I haerd was football related....

does anybody know when this Pub was built, I've just bought the Wirral pubs book 3, which says circa 1970, I would have said more like 1963/64, I got married in 1964 and never really drank in Hoylake anymore, didn't have to go and court my Wife. Interesting if anyone can throw any light on the date, Thanks

The plans for the new Pub were approved in September 1960, so I would think it probably opened some time during 1961.

Hello Marty, thanks very much for that info, I thought it was open before I married in 1964, but it was that long ago you start to doubt your memory, so it's 50 years since I was last in there, ouch.

Advert from the Hoylake News in June 1961. It's not 100% clear from the ad whether the Pub was actually open or whether it was still under construction, and during a quick search I couldn't find the usual notice concerning the opening, so it may have been in early 1962. Will have another look when I've got more time.
