Brook Mews North is a through road between Craven Terrace and Craven Hill in Westminster. The Mews has 57 properties on it and is approached through an entrance under a building on Craven Terrace. The Mews is L shaped and links onto Elms Mews, a redeveloped Mews through a passage behind Carroll House.
High explosive bombs are recorded falling onto nearby Craven Terrace in World War II. The area was recorded as being comfortable with good earnings when the London Poverty Maps were published.
Brook Mews North is part of the Church Commissioners’ Hyde Park Estate, and Westminster City Council’s Bayswater Conservation Area. It is situated on the north side of Hyde Park, opposite Albion Close.
The street consists of three storey properties with a mixture of painted and rendered brickwork exteriors and mansard or gable roofs. The road surface is tarmacadam and there are both intact and converted garages present.
The Mews buildings were originally the stable accommodation for the larger houses in Gloucester Terrace and Craven Terrace but now contain a mixture of houses, flats and garages. The plethora of working garages present represents a natural transition from the horse, but results in traffic and pollution. There have been many applications made for alterations to the properties before and since 2003, mainly demolition of some of the original properties in favour of newer, mews-style builds and changes to the fenestration of the surviving original properties. Conservation Area controls now apply to any new development in the Mews.
