Djeptford Unanchored

Once, it would have been as unthinkable as the removal of the Catford Cat, but The Deptford Anchor is gone. It has made way for a new-look Deptford High Street - its fate uncertain. The landmark, which doubled as a bench for Anchor Tennent's Extra-drinkers, has been removed and taken in to storage, without any decision about where it will end up.

Deptford's soul is adrift. The anchor must return!

The Crossfields blog has a moving tribute.
