Brook Mews North is a through road between Craven Terrace and Craven Hill.

There was also originally a Brook Mews South.

High explosive bombs are recorded falling onto nearby Craven Terrace in World War II. The area was recorded as being comfortable with good earnings when the London Poverty Maps were published.

The Mews is approached through an entrance under a building on Craven Terrace. The Mews is L shaped and links onto Elms Mews, a redeveloped Mews through a passage behind Carroll House.

The Mews buildings were originally the stable accommodation for the larger houses in Gloucester Terrace and Craven Terrace but now contain a mixture of houses, flats and garages. The plethora of working garages present represents a natural transition from the horse, but results in traffic and pollution. There have been many applications made for alterations to the properties before and since 2003, mainly demolition of some of the original properties in favour of newer, mews-style builds and changes to the fenestration of the surviving original properties. Conservation Area controls now apply to any new development in the Mews.

Vickers Road
The road ’Vickers Road’ is numbered rather differently to other roads in the area as it was originally built as housing for the "Vickers" arms factory in the late 1800’s and early 1900s. Most of the houses still retain the original 19th century tiling and drainage outside of the front doors.
