A Walk in Bermondsey: The Guinness Trust Buildings, Snowsfields (then called Snow's Fields), 1897-8. . In 1890, Sir Edward Guinness, the great-grandson of the founder of the Guinness Brewery, gave £200,000 (£25 million in today's money) to set up The Guinness Trust in London. . Housing conditions in the late 19th century for poor people were atrocious, but until the advent of council housing after the 1st world war, it was left to Victorian philanthropists such as Edward Guinness and the Peabody Trust to try and make a difference. . The Guinness Trust built eight new tenement estates within the first 11 years of operation, providing 2,597 homes (355 at Snow's Fields) for London's working class. Snow's Fields consisted of four large, five-storey red brick blocks of flats. Glazed bricks and tiles were used to prevent the spread of disease. . Initially, there were no WCs or running water in the flats, but there were communal sinks and toilets on each landing, and a separate block contained a bathhouse and laundry facilities. There were also very stringent rules about each tenant cleaning and maintaining their own flat, and taking turns to clean the stairways and communal areas. . Each Guinness Trust estate had a club room stocked with newspapers, books, and games - these were later converted into community halls. The blocks also had large, communal yards, where children could play safely. . #guinnesstrust

1800 - The rapid development of industry in Southwark attracted large number of migrants from across the British Isles. The growth in population saw many people living in poor, cramped accomodation. The Guinness Trust Buildings were established as a response to this overcrowding. Today, there remains a strong Irish community in the area. The building is just a few metres away from the Shard. trust
