Summary. A programme of building recording was carried out by the Colchester Archaeological Trust on a complex of farm buildings at Old Lodge Farm, White Hart Lane, Springfield, Essex in May 2013. The work was commissioned by Andrew Stevenson Associates on behalf of Jones Projects Ltd. The farm buildings are arranged in a loose courtyard plan with the farmhouse to the north-west. The complex includes three large threshing barns dating from the 17th-19th century, an 18th-century stable/granary (all of which are Grade II listed) and associated outbuildings dating from the 19th-20th century. The farm has its origins as a former park-keeper’s lodge in one of the deer parks of the New Hall estate (the former Honour of Beaulieu) which was granted to the Canons of Waltham Abbey in 1062.
