Come See The Beech Trees In Beech Lanes!
One of the constituents of Birmingham, Beech Lanes is part of the Harborne ward and is a rather small and mainly residential area that derived its name from – you guessed it! – the age-old beech trees that grow here. The first mentions of the village of Beech Lanes were around 1700, and around 1800 there were already a blacksmith, two pubs, a Baptist chapel, a post office, a wheelwright and a few shops here, serving not only the locals, but attracting passing trade too, thanks to the close proximity of the village to the road between Harborne and Smethwick and the turnpike between Birmingham and Halesowen/ Stourbridge established in 1753. Today, the name Beech Lanes refers mostly to the junction of Wolverhampton Road with Hagley Road and the surrounding leafy suburban area bordering Sandwell.
