Situated in South-West London in the Borough of Wandsworth is Plough Mews; a redeveloped cul-de-sac fronting Plough Terrace. The Mews contains 7 properties used for residential purposes.
The Mews is part of the St John’s Hill Grove Conservation Area. A high explosive bomb fell onto Plough Road, just above the Mews in World War II and when the London Poverty Maps were first published, the area was deemed to have comfortable living conditions with ordinary household earnings for the time.
The two and three storey properties have rendered and painted brickwork facades and hipped roof styles, surrounded by a tarmacadam road surface with both intact and converted garages, raised pavements 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.
Before and since 2003 there have been a number of planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being the erection of many new developments and alterations to the existing properties.
