On 24th January 2021 The Chelsea Society proposed to Historic England that the cabmens’ shelters in Pont Street, and near the Albert Bridge, be listed. Our application was supported by the MP, the GLA member, the Cheyne Walk Trust, MISARA, the Brompton Association, and RBKC.
We are delighted to report that our proposals have both been accepted and that the shelters are now listed Grade II under Entry numbers: 1474998, and 1474999
The third cabmens’ shelter in Chelsea, opposite the Victoria & Albert Museum, was already listed, so all three are now protected.
The shelter near Albert Bridge (L) has now been fully restored after The Chelsea Society persuaded RBKC to serve a dilapidations notice on the owners under section 215 of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990
