UPDATE: Unidentified Pub Locations from the Morse Series. Another is Identified.


Above is the the scene from Fat Chance where Morse and Lewis take a well earned lunch (It happens at 21 minutes. Up until today it was one of the few pubs that hadn’t been identified but HOORAH a blog reader, Victor Hall, wrote to tell me the ID of the pub. It is the Blue Anchor that was situated at the bottom of Fishpool St. St. Albans, Hertfordshire. The scene was filmed in the rear beer garden.





Sadly this pub is no more and due to be converted to a residential dwelling.

Victor, a huge thank you from me and I am sure many blog readers and Morse fans.

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.
