Situated to the north-east of London in Hackney, is The Cobbled Yard; a cobbled cul-de-sac off Bouverie Road, opposite Bouverie Mews. The Mews contains a small amount of properties used for commercial purposes.
The Mews is not part of a Conservation Area. A parachute mine fell onto Bouverie Road in World War II, just above the Mews and when the London Poverty Maps were first published, the area was deemed to have comfortable living conditions with ordinary household earnings.
The Cobbled Yard is made up of two storey, plain brickwork buildings with roofs hidden behind parapet walls surrounded by a cobbled road surface. Parking is restricted and there are intact garages present.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets and nowadays the properties are still used for commercial purposes.
