Situated within Inner London in the Borough of Camden, is Millman Mews; a cul-de-sac off Millman Street. The Mews contains 2 properties used for residential and commercial purposes.
The Mews is part of the Bloomsbury Conservation Area. Covering approximately 160 hectares in central London from High Holborn to Euston Road and King’s Cross Road to Tottenham Court Road, the area was designated in 1968. Due to the size of the Conservation Area, there is no one defining character but rather a collection of different sub-areas and their own characteristics. Most of the historic characteristics of the area are now confined to the Mews or privately maintained areas.
A high explosive bomb fell onto Millman Street, right next to the Mews, presumably causing significant damage to the properties in World War II and when the London Poverty Maps were first published, the area was deemed to have comfortable living conditions.
The two storey properties have plain brickwork facades with pitched roof styles, surrounded by a tarmacadam road surface and partial raised pavements.
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, with some commercial activity also taking place.
