The Oak

The name "Friar's Oak" probably originates from a corruption of the more ancient name, "Frye's Oak". An alternative, perhaps more romantic explanation, is that the name comes from a large oak tree under which monks from the local monstery distributed alms to the poor.
No matter which of these is the true explanation, Friars Oak Fields does have some very impressive oak trees....
