Situated within inner London in the Borough of Islington, is Moray Mews; a part-cobbled cul-de-sac off Durham Road. The Mews contains 12 properties used for commercial purposes.
The Mews is not part of a Conservation Area. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was deemed to have a mixture of comfortable and poorer living conditions.
The two storey properties have rendered and painted brickwork facades and parapet or flat roof styles, surrounded by a tarmacadam road surface with unrestricted parking and 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 primarily for commercial purposes.
Before and since 2003 there have been many planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being; an application made in April 2013 for the complete demolition and rebuilding of most of the properties (pending result).
