Situated within inner London in the Borough of Islington, is Nelson Place; a part-cobbled through road off Nelson Terrace. The Mews contains 11 properties used for residential purposes.
The Mews is part of the Duncan Terrace/ Colebrooke Row Conservation Area. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was deemed to have poorer than average living conditions.
The two storey properties have plain brickwork facades and mansard roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled and tarmacadam road surface with restricted parking and raised pavements.
Numbers 16-18 Nelson Place are Grade II Listed Buildings.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets but nowadays they are used primarily for residential purposes.
Before and since 2003 there have been very few planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, all for minor alterations.
