Blue Anchor Lane is an 18th century name for a street of medieval origin. In the late medieval period the lane was called Lord's Lane, and the gate Lord's Gate. They were renamed in the 18th C after the Blue Anchor Inn which stood in the lane.
The Postern Gate is at the bottom of Blue Anchor Lane and was one of the least important gates in the medieval town walls. It allowed access from Blue Anchor Lane to the quays on the west shore.
