MEWS MEMORABILIA DURWESTON MEWS: EXTRACT FROM MEWS NEWS SPRING 2010
We are always delighted when a past or present mews house owner contacts us with historic information. Most recently, we were sent plans from April 1890 of The Stables in Durweston Mews in Marylebone.
Whilst the “existing” plan does not give very much away, the “rearranged” plan clearly shows the stalls for the horses, the “coach house”, the living accommodation above and the “Provender” (dictionary definition = dry food, as hay or oats, for livestock or other domestic animals; fodder).
The contributor of this information, who lived in the mews, went on to write that in the late 1960’s, the Beatles’ Apple Store was on the next corner and Durweston Mews was a favourite parking spot of Patti Boyd (who married George Harrison) so she was in the thick of classic 1960’s life!
BOROUGH: City of Westminster.
