New Hey farmhouse and barn date from at least 1693 (the date on a datestone on the barn), 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
New Hey Farmhouse is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* The farm dates to the late C17
* Although the farmhouse has been converted for use by activity groups it survives relatively intact and retains a number of original features, such as roof trusses, plinthstones, and mullioned windows
* The farmhouse has group value with the associated barn to the North West (qv)
