The Anchor Inn is now a private residence called Anchor House. The High Street address is something of a misnomer – the street is so narrow that passing cars have difficulty manoeuvring out of each others way. The Cotswold stone houses and cottages straddling the High Street were built in an age when horse drawn transport reigned supreme. It is not difficult to imagine two or three horses with their carriages parked outside the Anchor Inn causing chaos in days gone by.
