Lambton Place is a cobbled cul-de-sac off Westbourne Grove in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, with a pedestrian through road leading to Ledbury Mews West, another original/ surviving Mews. It contains 9 properties used for residential and commercial purposes.
When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was noted as having a mixture of comfortable living condition with lower than average, poorer household salaries for the time. A high explosive bomb fell west of the Mews onto Westbourne Grove in World War II.
The Mews is part of Kensington’s ‘Pembridge’ Conservation Area. One of the earliest designations in 1969, the area has since been developed in the 19th Century and contains a wide variety of different building types; from Mews to terraces and semi-detached/ detached villas.
The two storey properties have a mansard roof styles and rendered or painted brickwork facades. Parking is restricted along the cobbled road, with partial-raised pavements.
Originally the stable house accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets, the primary purpose of the Mews properties is now a mixture of both commercial and residential.
Before and since 2003 there have been a number of planning applications made for alterations to the properties in Lambton Place, most concerning the change of purpose of the properties from commercial to residential.
Conservation Area controls now apply to new development in the Mews.
