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.

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

John Rocque Map of London (1762) FREE DOWNLOAD
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
