Gateshead, Half Moon Lane, Nos.10-32, Half Moon Hotel
A single composition dating from 1873 and 1879 by James M Robinson with shops and a pub at either end. The two pubs were thought to be connected by an east-west cellar passage along the northern side of the range. The Half Moon Public House and No. 22 Half Moon Lane were amongst the oldest remaining domestic properties remaining north of Askew Road. They perpetuated the north side of a street line that has been in existence since the medieval times. The remainder of the properties to the east of No. 22 (HER 7914) were damaged by fire circa 2000 and subsequently demolished. The remaining properties are two storeys, the first floor brick built with white render and pairs of plain sashes with dark grey painted chamfered ashlar surroundings. The Mirk Lane elevation comprises a two bay return with large windows with stained glass. The front elevation comprises three segmented headed windows with thin pilasters and doorway with panel doors. The slate roof with coped gables and various ridge stacks has partially collapsed with the remaining section in very poor repair. There is a distinctive chamfered corner doorway with double panel doors and segmented fanlight. LISTED GRADE 2
