Situated to the north-east of London in Hackney is Atlas Mews; a cobbled Mews-Style cul-de-sac off Tyssen Street. The Mews has no equine heritage and contains 14 properties used for residential purposes and is now gated, with no access to the general public on visit in July 2013.
The Mews is part of the Dalston Lane (West) Conservation Area. A high explosive bomb fell onto Dalston Lane in World War II, just west of the Mews and when the London Poverty Maps were first published, the area was deemed to have very poor living conditions with much lower than average household earnings.
Atlas Mews is made up of two and three storey, plain brickwork buildings with mansard and parapet roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled road surface. Parking is unrestricted and there are no garages present.
There have been a few planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews both before and since 2003, the most notable being the use of properties for residential purposes and roof extensions.
Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
