SHEEPWASH THE SQUARE. Sheepwash
SS 40 NE
7/102 Half Moon Inn
-
21.2.77
GV II
Inn. C17 and circa mid - later C19. Plastered, probably rubble and cob, walls.
Asbestos slate roof hipped to left end, gabled to right. Brick stack at right
gable-end of both ranges and to front of 1-storey wing.
Plan: the oldest part is that to the right which had formerly a 2-room plan, the
right-hand room heated by an end fireplace. It is now all one room. A small L-
shaped wing projecting from the right end of this range was added at some time in
the C19. At the left end is a substantial addition of 2 or 3-rooms dating probably
from the mid C19 which may even have been 2 separate cottages.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4:4:2 window front. Taller C19 range to left
has small-paned 2-light C19 casements apart from a mid to later C19 3-light bay sash
window on the ground floor to left. Double gabled open-fronted porch left of centre
behind which is C19 6-panel door to right and blocked doorway to left. C17 section
to right is lower and also has small-paned 2-light casements which are probably C19
on the 1st floor and C20 below. Gabled late C19 or early C20 porch to right of
centre has early C19 6-panel door behind. Lower addition at its right end has
similar windows and 1-storey wing projecting to the front.
Interior: C17 range contains open fireplace with chamfered and straight-cut stopped
wooden lintel add similar ceiling beams, 1 of which near the centre has mortices for
a partition.
Unlike many houses which have been converted to inns this building remains
remarkably unspoilt both internally and externally.
