Situated in south-east London in the Borough of Lewisham is Harefield Mews; a cobbled through road off Harefield Road. The Mews contains 16 properties used for commercial and residential purposes.
The Mews is not part of a Conservation Area. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area surrounding the Mews was deemed to have very comfortable living conditions with higher than average household earnings. A high explosive bomb fell onto Harefield Road, next to the Mews in World War II.
The one and two storey properties have plain and painted brickwork facades and parapet, pitched or flat roof styles surrounded by a cobbled, pebbled and tarmacadam road surface with intact garages.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets and nowadays they are used for a mixture of residential and commercial purposes.
Before and since 2003 there have been a large amount of planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being; the change of use of some properties, conversions with alterations to the elevations and extensions.
