Fulton Mews is a T-shaped cul-de-sac, approached through its own arch off Porchester Terrace in Westminster. The Mews has 15 properties used for residential purposes and is oriented in an east-west direction.
In World War II, a high explosive bomb fell directly onto Queensborough Mews, another original/ surviving Mews street just to the north-west of Fulton Mews. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was described as being a mixture of comfortable living conditions with normal household earnings to very wealthy households.
Fulton Mews is part of Westminster City Council’s Bayswater Conservation Area. Developed over the space of about 70 years, the townscape is uniform despite being composed of several distinct areas and is made up of a regular composition of streets and squares in an Italianate style. An important aspect of the street pattern are the several mews, some quite intimate and others so large that they appear to be a development of their own. The contrast of scale provided by these mews is a crucial aspect of the overall area’s character.
The three storey properties have mansard roofs and a mixture of plain or painted brickwork facade. The garages are intact and parking is restricted on the cobbled road.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stabling for the surrounding properties but nowadays they are mainly used for residential purposes. There have been a few planning applications made since 2003, mainly roof extensions and changes to the fenestration. Conservation Area controls now apply to any new development in the Mews.
