Situated within Inner London in the Borough of Camden, is Fairfax Place; a part-cobbled through road with a cul-de-sac section off Fairfax Road. The Mews contains 38 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.
A high explosive bomb fell onto Fairfax Road, right next to the Mews, presumably causing significant damage to the properties in World War II and when the London Poverty Maps were first published, the area was deemed to have poorer than average living conditions.
The two storey properties have a mixture of gable and pitched roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled and tarmacadam road surface.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on Fairfax Road 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; single storey extensions and loft conversions.
