In Mort, it's the town where Mort is hired by Death as an apprentice, surprisingly at an apprentice fair and at the stroke of midnight. The town has a tavern run by the Lifton family and a smithy owned by Ned Simnel. The most impressive feature of Sheepridge is the town clock where little figures emerge to strike the hour from their little house. There is also a small cemetery, though people in these parts are so long-lived that it was said that they had to hit someone over the head with a spade before they could bury anyone. Various shops for the farming classes can be found in the main square, and there is an ornamental clock tower.
