Situated in south London in the Borough of Lambeth, is Victoria Mews; a private, gated and cobbled cul-de-sac off Victoria Rise, near to Cedar Mews. The Mews contains 4 properties used for residential purposes. It is located on the site of an original Mews but has been re-developed to a degree that it no longer contains any surviving Mews properties.
The Mews is part of the Clapham Conservation Area. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was deemed to have a mixture of comfortable and poorer living conditions. A high explosive bomb fell onto Clapham Common North Side, just below the Mews in World War II.
The two storey properties have rendered or painted brickwork facades and roofs hidden behind parapet walls, surrounded by a cobbled road surface with restricted parking and intact garages.
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 many planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being; the change of use from a builders yard/ offices to single dwelling unit in 1995, along with partial demolitions in 1996 to facilitate elevational alterations.
