Situated within inner London in the Borough of Islington is Cobble Lane; a cobbled cul-de-sac off Edwards Mews (not original/ surviving). The Mews contains 7 properties used for commercial and residential 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 not part of a Conservation Area. A high explosive bomb fell directly onto the Mews, causing significant damage to the properties within. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was deemed to have a mixture of comfortable and poorer living conditions.
The two storey properties have plain brickwork facades and gable roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled road surface with restricted parking and intact garages.
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 still used primarily for commercial and residential purposes.
Before and since 2003 there have been a few planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being; first floor extensions.
