Rattlesden Half Moonhistorical era: mid 20th century
closed between 1958 and 1974?
Half Moon St
We know the Half Moon was burned down, though not exactly when. The pub appears on OS maps at least as late as 1958, but seems to be gone by the 1974 sheet, so presumably closed between those dates.
The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
