Situated in south London in the Borough of Lambeth, is Cedars Mews; a cobbled cul-de-sac off Cedar’s Road, near to Victoria Mews. The Mews contains 9 properties used for residential purposes.
The Mews is part of the Clapham Conservation Area. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was deemed to have a mixture of comfortable and poorer living conditions. A high explosive bomb fell onto Clapham Common North Side, just below the Mews in World War II.
The two storey properties have plain brickwork facades and roofs hidden behind parapet walls, surrounded by a cobbled road surface with restricted parking and both intact and converted garages.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets but nowadays they are used primarily for residential purposes.
Before and since 2003 there have been many planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being; conversion of flats to houses, basement excavations, changes to the fenestration and single storey ground floor extensions.
