Situated within inner London in the Borough of Islington is Criterion Mews; a through road off Fairbridge Road. The Mews contains 14 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 Holloway Road in World War II, right next to the Mews, presumably causing significant damage to the properties within.
The two storey properties have rendered and painted brickwork facades and flat roof styles, surrounded by a tarmacadam road surface with restricted parking and no 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 a few planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being; the change of use from commercial to residential.
