High Beach or High Beech

Between yesterday's rain showers I ventured out to High Beach (also spelled as High Beech) and photographed the King's Oak pub and the green outside. The green was a popular coach-trippers' venue in the early 20th century while the area behind the pub hosted Britain's first motorcycle speedway meeting in 1928 attracting 10,000 people.
