Summary. A programme of building recording was carried out by the Colchester Archaeological Trust on the Stag Inn, a brick and timber-framed structure in Hatfield Heath, Essex, in December 2013. The work was commissioned by Mascall Homes Ltd. The earliest components of the building are the remains of a timber-framed inn known as the Horseshoe, which date to at least 1723. A brick fašade and side walls were constructed in or around 1769, when the inn was renamed the Bald Stag. Extensions were added in the mid 19th century, with further construction carried out in the last quarter of the 19th century providing space for additional businesses. Alterations made during the 20th century incorporated the extensions for these additional businesses into the footprint of the public house.
