Chancery Lane takes its name from the historic High Court of Chancery, which started its association with the area when Robert de Chesney, the Bishop of Lincoln acquired the ‘old Temple’ in 1161.  High Holborn is a street in Holborn, Central London, which forms a part of the A40 route from London to Fishguard. It starts in the west as a turn off Charing Cross Road, near St Giles Circus, and runs past the Kingsway and Southampton Row, becoming Holborn at its eastern junction with Gray’s Inn Road.

Now you have a bit of background on the streets.  Is the area worthy of photography?  Yes.  A few places along High Holborn Street are great examples of past London architecture.  Chancery Lane is deemed a  historical preservation area so little or no redevelopment can take place.  For this reason, I include High Holborn Street and Chancery Lane on my list of the best places to photograph London; however, trek to this area only after capturing the images on your list of photographs to take.
