Radley Mews is a part-cobbled through road off Stratford Road in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, joining onto Lexham Mews, also containing original/ surviving Mews properties. Radley Mews contains 31 properties, used for residential and commercial purposes.
During World War II, the Aggregate Night Time Bomb Census recorded a high explosive bomb falling onto Lexham Gardens, very close to the Mews. In the past, the area was noted as having a mixture of comfortable living conditions and poorer household earnings for the time when the London Poverty Maps were first published.
The Mews is part of Kensington’s Edwardes Square, Scarsdale and Abingdon Conservation Area, which was first designated in January 1970 and extended in 1970 to cover part of Adam and Eve Mews (complete cover in 1981). The small-scale back streets contrast pleasantly with the major terraces. The area contains a fair number of Mews and individual studios off Stratford Road.
The two storey properties have rendered or painted brickwork facades with a mixture of different roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled and tarmacadam road surface.
Originally used as the coach house/ stable accommodation for the main houses on Lexham Gardens, the primary purpose of the Mews properties is now a mixture of residential and commercial.
Before and since 2003 there have been a few planning applications made for alterations to the properties in Radley Mews; mainly concerning roof alterations.
Conservation Area controls now apply to new development in the Mews.
