Liphook


Liphook grew as a coaching stop on the London to Portsmouth route. The road was very poor and the route through Liphook only used in emergencies, eg. the 1588 Armada.
A coach service from London to Portsmouth started in 1688, which coincided with growth of the Royal Anchor coaching inn, and other buildings in The Square. The service and roads slowly improved but highwaymen were still a problem as the 18th century notices in the Royal Anchor show.
In the 1660's the journey time from London to Portsmouth was 2 days - by 1819 this was reduced to 10 hours with seven daily coaches and three nightly.
Local tradition has it that Nelson spent his last night in England in Liphook before sailing to his fatal Battle at Trafalgar.
George III and Queen Charlotte on their stay gave permission for the Blue Anchor to be renamed to the Royal Anchor.

Samuel Pepys Diary

"So to coach again, and got to Lippock, late over Hindhead, having an old man, a guide, in the coach with us; but got thither with great fear of being out of our way, it being ten at night. Here good, honest people; and after supper, to bed."
Samuel Pepys Diary,
6 August 1668
