Newhey Road is a familiar name in Huddersfield, but how many know where Newhey is?

The alteration from 'New Hey' to Newhey' was made without my permission. The place has been called 'New Hey' for well over a century (see 'historic map' and 'New Hey Road' (constructed c. 1820) in Huddersfield). However the OS seem to be fostering a fashion for running the two words into one.
