Albion Mews is a cobbled cul-de-sac that is approached through an entrance under a building on Albion Street.

The Mews is one of a number of mews called Albion orginally. There was an Albion Mews North, an Albion Mews West and this one before the others were renamed.

Albion Mews is part of the Church Commissioners’ Hyde Park Estate, and Westminster City Council’s Bayswater Conservation Area.

The Mews contains 16 properties used for residential purposes. The Mews runs approximately North-South in similar configuration to Archery Close, another original/surviving Mews around the corner, off Connaught Street. The Mews originally provided stable/ coach house accommodation for the larger houses in Albion Street. Conservation Area controls now apply to new development in the Mews.

Rossmore Road is not in Camden Town, it is in St Marylebone - I should know. I was born and raised there! If anyone wants a further information please post on here.

Marble Arch

Marble Arch station was opened on 30 July 1900 by the Central London Railway.

Like all the original stations on the CLR, Marble Arch was served by lifts to the platforms but the station was reconstructed in the early 1930s to accommodate escalators. This saw the closure of the original station building, designed by the architect Harry Bell Measures, that was situated on the corner of Quebec Street and Oxford Street, and a replacement sub-surface ticket hall opened further to the west. The new arrangements came into use on 15 August 1932. The original surface building was later demolished.

The platforms, originally lined in plain white tiles, were refitted with decorative vitreous enamel panels in 1985. The panel graphics were designed by Annabel Grey.

The station was modernised in 2010 resulting in new finishes in all areas of the station, apart from the retention of various of the decorative enamel panels at platform level.
