Situated within inner London in the Borough of Islington is Dagmar Passage; a Mews Style, mixed-surface pedestrian thoroughfare with no vehicular access off Cross Street. The Passage contains 7 properties used for residential purposes.
The Passage is part of the Cross Street Conservation Area. A high explosive bomb fell onto Dagmar Terrace in World War II, right next to the street, causing significant damage to the properties within. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was deemed to have poorer living conditions in comparison to what was ordinary at the time.
The two storey properties have plain and painted brickwork facades and roofs hidden behind parapet walls, surrounded by a mixed material road surface with no parking and no garages.
The mews style properties are used primarily for residential purposes. Number 14 is a theatre opened in 1961.
Before and since 2003 there have been very few planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Passage, the most notable being; single storey extensions to the properties.
