Bradley's Tea Hut
Epping Forest's first tea hut, originally opened in 1930.
Location: Hill Wood, Fairmead Road, High Beech, Epping For, IG10 4HR
Description: This famous tea hut in High Beech, north of Chingford in Epping Forest is a famous stop off for travellers especially bikers in North East London.
It was opened in 1930 by Ernie Miller 2 years after speedway was first run nearby.
