Situated within Inner London in the Borough of Camden, is St. Paul’s Mews; a gated and cobbled redeveloped Mews cul-de-sac off St. Paul’s Crescent. The Mews contains 30 properties used for residential purposes and was built around 1990 on the site of an Original Mews.
The Mews is part of the Camden Square Conservation Area; designated in October 1974, it includes Camden Square and Rochester Square, bordered by Camden Road in the North West. It has since been extended in 1980 and 2002. The area has a distinct pattern of wide streets lined with houses. Set back from the street with Mews behind. The Mews typically consist of two storey buildings standing at the back of narrow roadways.
A high explosive bomb fell onto Agar Grove, north of the Mews, presumably causing damage to the properties in World War II.
Built between 1987-91 and laid out in a double curve, the three storey properties have plain and rendered brickwork facades with a mixture of gable and parapet roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled road surface. The properties are linked together with panelled garages and entrances, with two storeys of brick above for accommodation.
Before and since 2003 there have been a few planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being alterations to the fenestration. Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
