A change in personal circumstances provides a rarely available opportunity to fulfil one of life’s dreams of converting a substantial barn in a spectacular setting for the family’s long term occupation.

New Hall Barn has attracted much interest over many years due to its position amidst the rolling expanse of Rivington, an area of exceptional natural beauty and where the surrounding land and agricultural practices are regulated due to it being within the water catchment area.

The barn which is situated just north of the village green inside the boundaries of the Conservation Area enjoys panoramic views all around and down to the necklace of reservoirs which sprinkle in the evening sunlight.

It is of substantial construction with main walls of graded dress stone under a new slate roof. Work to date includes formation of block work inner leaf, erection of internal walls and partitions, installation of some window frames and first fix of services.

It provides the opportunity to continue the alterations to the intended design or remodel the internal arrangement to the Purchaser’s own requirements.


From the village green in the centre of the village proceed up Sheep House Lane and the barn is then on the left. (see map).


Permission was obtained for the conversion of the barn into a four bedroom residence on the 5th February 2015 (Application No. 14/00911/FUL).

A copy of the permission can be made available or viewed on Chorley Borough Council’s website. applications/
