Lincoln’s Inn is one of the four Inns of Court, among whose benchers number Thomas More, Donne and Garrick. Dickens worked as a clerk in the Court of Chancery and acquired his somewhat jaundiced view of the workings of the law. Today, non-lawyers may walk in the garden and enjoy the Hall built in 1490 and the chapel with its high wooden pews.
Next door, Lincoln’s Inn Fields is surrounded by many splendid houses representative of the past few centuries. One constant in their construction is timber - particularly in wooden floors. They have remained popular because of their natural beauty and ease of maintenance. Their obvious durability is easy to appreciate in older buildings, whether in the form of hardwood boards or parquet blocks.
Wear and tear is inevitable; digs and damage a possibility. The solution is the same: a tired or marked floor can be brought back to life by modern floor sanding.

Useful facts about Holborn:
Holborn is an area of central London and also the name of the area's principal street, known as High Holborn between St. Giles's High Street and Gray's Inn Road (the junction being roughly where Holborn Bar — the entrance to the City of London — once was) and then Holborn Viaduct between Holborn Circus and Newgate Street. Since boundary changes in 1994, the street runs along the boundary between the London Borough of Camden and the City of London; previously the boundary was less obvious in the area and crossed the street at Holborn Bar.
It was then outside the City's jurisdiction and a part of Ossulstone Hundred in Middlesex. In the 12th century St Andrew's was noted in local title deeds as lying on "Holburnestrate"—Holborn Street. The original Bars were the boundary of the City of London from 1223, when the City's jurisdiction was extended beyond the Walls, at Newgate, into the suburb here, as far as the point where the Bars where erected, until 1994 when the border moved to the junction of Chancery Lane. In 1394 the Ward of Farringdon Without was created, but only the south side of Holborn was under its jurisdiction with some minor properties, such as parts of Furnival's Inn, on the northern side, "above Bars".
Further east, in the gated avenue of Ely Place, is St Etheldreda's Church, originally the chapel of the Bishop of Ely’s London palace. This ecclesiastical connection allowed the street to remain part of the county of Cambridgeshire until the mid-1930s. This meant that the Mitre Tavern, located in a court hidden behind the buildings of the Place and the Garden was subject to the Cambridgeshire Magistrates to grant its licence. St Etheldreda's is the oldest church building used for Roman Catholic worship in London, but this became so only after it ceased to be an Anglican chapel in the 19th century.
