The "Mountain Stag" was a nickname of a local
athlete, named Lang. His nephew was the landlord
in 1869. He could have been there for a number
of years, but it seems that it could have gone by
that name before he took it.

See the article below, dating from 1850.

Oldham; Lang, the "Mountain Stag"..............
