Cornwall Gardens Walk is a part-cobbled pedestrian through road off Cornwall Gardens in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Cornwall Gardens Walk contains 14 properties, used for residential purposes.
During World War II, the Aggregate Night Time Bomb Census recorded a high explosive bomb falling onto the far end of Cornwall Gardens, away from the Mews. In the past, the area was noted as having a mixture of comfortable living conditions and poorer household earnings for the time when the London Poverty Maps were first published.
The Mews is part of the ‘Cornwall’ Conservation Area. The De Vere Conservation Area was originally designated in 1969 as Kensington New Town, with the other two (Kensington Court and Cornwall) areas being designated separately soon after. In 1985, the boundaries were modified and revised.
The two and three storey properties have plain or painted brickwork facades with mansard and pitched roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled and tarmacadam road surface. There are plants present in the Mews in addition to raised party walls.
Originally used as the coach house/ stable accommodation for the main houses on Cornwall Gardens, the primary purpose of the Mews properties is now residential rather than commercial.
Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
