2A Regency Mews

1890

1961

1985

2011
Number 2A Regency Mews which backs on to 24 Castle Street has gone through many changes over the last 120 years yet remarkably seems to have retained the same wooden doors. Evidently, at some time before 1961, windows into the ground floor were cheaply provided by the simple expedient of cutting out triangular sections between the doors' cross-bracings.

However the life of these doors may now be coming to an end if application BH2014/00642 is approved. This proposes conversion of the premises, described as vacant offices into two 3-bedroom houses. "Modest" alterations to the front elevation and fenestrations are called for as illustrated below.
