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.
