Half Moon, Brays Lane, Stoke
|I can only imagine that the half moon was a simple, easily recognised, pictoral sign.
In 1772 the Half Moon at Stoke was used for an auction. In Rev. T. A. Blythe's 1897 book The History of Stoke, the Half Moon Inn is described as standing at the south east corner of Bray's Lane, and kept by John Bray, victualler and farmer.|
