New Hey farmhouse and barn date from at least 1693, the land being farmed by the Holdsworth family for many years before it was taken over by the Water Authority during construction of Scammonden Dam in the 1960s. The farm was included in the lease of Scammonden Water Sailing Club in the 1960s but was disused until being taken over by the District Scout Council and converted to a residential outdoor centre.
REASONS FOR DESIGNATION
The barn to the North West of New hey farmhouse is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* The farm dates to the late C17
* Although the barn has been converted for use by activity groups it survives relatively intact and retains a number of original features, such as a datestone of 1693, an oak lintel in the doorway, and moulded millstone grit corbels.
* The barn has group value with the associated farm house to the South East (qv)
