History of Lincoln’s Inn Fields

Thirty years ago, Lincoln’s Inn Fields had acquired a reputation principally as an encampment for homeless people (see the press cuttings below).  In the early 1990’s, the Lincoln’s Inn Fields Association, a predecessor of the Friends of Lincoln’s Inn Fields, worked with Camden Council to turn it into the park we know today.

However, during almost 650 years of recorded history, Lincoln’s Inn Fields has had a wide variety of uses and been host to numerous dramatic and significant events. To read more, click on the links below.
