Situated to the west of London in Hammersmith and Fulham is Burlington Lodge Studios; a gated, cobbled Mews Style cul-de-sac off Rigault Road. The cul-de-sac contains 13 properties used for residential purposes.
The Mews is part of the Fulham Park Gardens Conservation Area. A few high explosive bombs fell onto Rigault Road in World War II, not far from the Studios and when the London Poverty Maps were first published, the area was deemed to have wealthy living conditions with higher than average household earnings.
Burlington Lodge Studios consists of one and two storey, plain brickwork buildings with a mixture of different roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled road surface.
The original purpose of the Mews-Style properties were as part of a women’s prison that covered most of this area from 1856 – 1888 but nowadays the properties are used for residential purposes.
There have been a few planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Studios both before and since 2003, mainly concerning roof extensions. Conservation Area controls apply to any new developments in the Studios.
