Miss 'Vinkworth's activity, however, was not confined to literature, for she was devoted to work among the poor. Like .Miss Octavia Hill, the question of obtaining for them decent dwellings at reasonable prices occupied much of her attention. She began by herself taking houses, and letting them in separate tenements, and as the work grew upon her she formed a" limited" company among her friends for the erection of a large block of buildings at Jacob's Well, Clifton. She drew the plans for this successful building herself, after thorough personal examination of such buildings in other towns, and was managing director of it to the end of her life. Miss 'Vinkworth was a Member of the Women's Suffrage Society ; also a governor of the " Red Maids' School " in Bristol, and was on the governing council of the Cheltenham LS:dies' Council. ·
