Jacob's-Well-Mews

A high explosive bomb fell nearby onto Manchester Square in World War II, south-west of the Mews. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was determined as having fairly comfortable households with good, ordinary earnings.

 

Jacob’s Well Mews is a part of Westminster City Council’s Portman Estate Conservation Area. Situated in the boundaries of Marylebone, which was once covered with forest and marshland, the estate originally comprised about 270 acres and now contains a variety of buildings from different centuries, from many examples of Mews to the grand terraces of Bryanston Square and Montagu Square.

 

The Mews has two and three storey buildings with a mixture of mansard and pitched roof styles and a variety of different materials used on the facades of the buildings. The garages present remain intact and surrounded by a tarmacadam road surface. Michael Faraday once lived here.

 

Everchanging Nature

 

The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation to the main houses in the surrounding area. Now, it is used for a mixture of commercial and residential purposes.

 

A few planning applications have been made before and since 2003 for alterations to the properties, mainly concerning roof extensions, changes to the fenestration and the complete demolition of some properties. Conservation Area controls now apply to new development in the Mews.
