Situated within inner London in the Borough of Islington, is Hardwicke Mews; a gated and redeveloped part-cobbled cul-de-sac off Lloyd Baker Street. The Mews contains 8 properties used for residential purposes.
The Mews is part of the New River Conservation Area. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was deemed to have comfortable living conditions and ordinary household earnings.
The two storey properties have plain brickwork facades and pitched roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled and tarmacadam road surface with restricted parking and no garages. The properties have raised party walls and a decorative finish along the top of the facade.
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 a loft conversion and roof alterations.
