Continuing my posts on green London, here's a picture of London's largest public square - Lincoln's Inn Fields. It was laid out in the 1630s, but as far back as the Middle Ages it had been fields used for recreation by students from the nearby law courts.
Nowadays Lincoln's Inn Fields is used for gentle pursuits like picnics and yoga classes, but historically it was a place were duels were frequently fought and was even a site of public execution. Sir John Soane's Museum, which I blogged about recently, stands on the north side.
Lincoln's Inn Fields is at London, WC2A 3TL and the nearest station is Chancery Lane.
