Little Guildford Street was the middle part of what is now Herbrand Street, between Great Coram Street and Bernard Street, on the western edge of the Foundling estate.

It appears in rough outline on Horwood’s map of 1799, and fully developed, together with Mews to both sides, on his map of 1807

This area was undeveloped fields until the early eighteenth century

It was presumably named for its location near Guilford Street

No numbers appear on Horwood’s maps

There was a pub, the Red Lion, there in the 1820s (The Times, 3 June 1824); there were also livery stables (The Times, 10 June 1825)

At the end of the century, the pub was still there, but had become the Old Red Lion (The Times, 11 June 1883); there was also now a school, Christ Church School (The Times, 26 November 1888), presumably associated with nearby Christ Church, Woburn Square

By the latter part of the century the street had become a slum; in 1897 the leases fell in and the street was sold, along with Little Coram Street, to the LCC in 1898 (Donald Olsen, Town Planning in London, 2nd edn, 1984)

It was incorporated into the new Herbrand Street development in 1901.

Early tests carried out by police as part of a criminal investigation into the disaster found the insulating material behind the panels was even more flammable than the west London tower's cladding.

Monday morning update from Camden Council on Chalcots Estate operation
Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council said: “Camden Council would like to thank residents for their patience and co-operation during this period of unprecedented disruption. “We have been working through the night to allocate residents with safe and secure accommodation, and there are now just 14 people staying at Swiss Cottage rest centre. We hope to find a comfortable place for them to stay by the end of the day. “We would also like to thank the residents who moved from their flats on the Chalcots estate last night, helping us to continue with the urgent fire safety works across all four blocks. “As the working week begins we are committed to doing all that we can to support you and your family through the challenges posed by your displacement. “Schools across the borough are aware of the situation and sympathetic to the fact that children may arrive late, without uniform, books or homework. We are looking at options for more play activities and study space out of school hours to support children affected by the evacuation. “If you have been staying with family and friends and are in need of temporary accommodation on a longer term basis, the Swiss Cottage rest centre will be remaining open as an information point. Here, you can register with us, and we will do everything we can to help you move as smooth as possible. “We are also working with SISK to make accommodation available in our brand new Maiden Lane development, if you are staying in a hotel but would prefer to stay at Maiden Lane please register your interest by emailing: chalcotsestate@camden.gov.uk “Our contractors are very busy across the estate, working hard to complete fire safety works as quickly as possible to bring a swift end to the disruption. We have already started works to ensure that residents' doors are self-closing, and today will begin working to correct all of the other issues identified as a risk by the fire service “The urgent works at Blashford* have now been completed and the Fire Services have confirmed that the building is safe. We will now continue with the other works required. “We have undertaken works to ceilings, electric doors and cupboards and I am very pleased with the pace of our dedicated teams. 200 self-closing doors have been delivered and we are ready to start installing them today. “Thank you again for your help in the face of unimaginable disruption. This has been hugely important in helping us get to work, as we step up our game to ensure the safety of you and your neighbours." *Note: residents have not been evacuated from this block (Blashford), as there were key differences from the other four blocks on the Chalcots estate - see earlier press statements on this web page.

Herbrand Street, WC1N

Herbrand Street is in the east of Bloomsbury, running south from Tavistock Place to Guilford Street.

It was developed out of the remains of Colonnade Mews, Little Coram Street, and Little Guilford Street.

Most of its east side was on the Foundling estate (apart from the land sold to the Peabody Trust and the parish of St George’s Bloomsbury in the 1870s), while the west side was on the Bedford estate

It was built in 1901, occupying the former footprint of Colonnade Mews, Little Coram Street, and Little Guilford Street, with some buildings from these streets surviving to become part of the new street

It was named after Herbrand Russell, eleventh Duke of Bedford and first Mayor of the new Borough of Holborn

It was mainly intended to sweep away the worst of previous slums.

In the twentieth century it held an eclectic mixture of pubs, residential accommodation of various kinds, and a landmark Art Deco garage building
