Situated in North-East London in the Borough of Redbridge, is York Mews; a through road off York Road. The Mews contains 19 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 not part of a Conservation Area. A parachute mine fell onto Mansfield Road, north-east of the Mews in World War II.
The one, two and three storey properties have rendered and brickwork facades and gable roof styles, surrounded by a tarmacadam road surface with converted garages and restricted parking.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on York Road and nowadays they are used for a mixture of residential purposes.
Before and since 2003 there have been a few planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being; the partial or complete demolition of many properties and the erection of newer developments.
