Hare Court, London, England, UK, 2005

Spooky stories connected to this courtyard from the past are resurfacing until contemporary days, William Blackstone, Oliver Goldsmith, Thomas Manning, Charles Lamb, Henry VIII, Anne Price, Sarah Malcolm, are just some of the names. Hare Court was also connected in 1530 to the case against Nicholas Throckmorton, rebelling against the Queen Mary.

Atmosphere in these "temple area" courts is what makes this part of old London so unique.

It is very well preserved even with damage during great fire in 1666, devastation during Second World War and not always skillful reconstructions and repairs are not diminishing its value.
