Situated in South-West London in the Borough of Wandsworth, is Craven Mews; a gated and paved cul-de-sac approached through an entrance under a building on Taybridge Road. The Mews contains 17 properties used for 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 onto Taybridge Road in World War II and when the London Poverty Maps were first published, the area was deemed to have comfortable living conditions with ordinary household earnings for the time.
The two storey properties have plain and painted brickwork facades and ridged roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled road surface with both intact and converted garages and restricted parking.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets and nowadays they are predominantly used for residential purposes.
Before and since 2003 there have been a number of planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being; changes to the fenestration.
