Situated to the north-east of London in Hackney, is Bouverie Mews; a cobbled cul-de-sac off Bouverie Road. The Mews contains just 1 property used for commercial purposes. It is located on the site of an original Mews but has been re-developed to a degree that it no longer contains any surviving Mews properties.
The Mews is part of the Stoke Newington Conservation Area. A parachute mine fell onto Bouverie Road in World War II, just above the Mews and when the London Poverty Maps were first published, the area was deemed to have comfortable living conditions with ordinary household earnings.
Bouverie Mews is made up of two storey, plain brickwork buildings with roofs hidden behind parapet walls, surrounded by a cobbled road surface. Parking is restricted and there are both intact and converted garages present.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets and nowadays the properties are predominantly still used for commercial purposes; there being no residential properties in the Mews.
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 change of use of the existing warehouse to a cafe, antique shop, ballroom and bar music venue in 2010. Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
