Situated in East London in the Borough of Tower Hamlets, is Lyn Mews; a gated and cobbled cul-de-sac off Tredegar Square. The Mews contains 3 properties used for residential purposes. It is located on the site of an original Mews but has been re-developed to a degree that it no longer contains any surviving Mews properties.
The Mews is part of the Tredegar Square Conservation Area. A high explosive bomb fell onto Tredegar Square in World War II and when the London Poverty Maps were originally published, the area was deemed to have very comfortable living conditions and higher than average household earnings for the time.
The two storey properties have plain brickwork facades and pitched roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled road surface with no garages and restricted parking.
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 predominantly used for residential purposes.
