Healey (Rothbury)


Healey is a farmstead in Northumberland, located about 2 miles west of Longframlington and 2 miles south-east of Rothbury. Healey is though to be the site of a medieval hamlet called Over Healey, first documented in 1588.[1] The farm buildings here include a 19th century barn, pigsty and gingang, which are Grade II listed.[2] In the 19th century, Healey was part of Mount Healey township in the ancient parish of Rothbury. Today, Healy and nearby Healey Cote form part of Brinkburn and Hesleyhurst Civil Parish.

Not to be confused with Healey near Hexham.
