There is a term often used in residential property within Bloomsbury known as the ‘ever-changing mews’. I’m fairly confident the term is applicable to many other areas within in London however within Bloomsbury; it is commonly used to describe the increase in planning applications made to alter or completely change the use of charismatic buildings to residential use.

About the Building
Jockey’s Fields in Georgian era, was referred to a Bedford Mews (which served as the stable and coach houses for the main houses on Bedford Row) and was developed within in 1720. The location runs along the western edge of Gray’s Inn Road and once served as a quite mews to Bedford Row which is positioned close by. The mews location was eventually renamed to that of the original Jockey Field to which the mews was developed over.
The Local Area
The location is very peaceful and with a few left and right turns through some typical London passages and walks you find yourself within the many amenities of Holborn and Covent Garden.
