Turn right out of Stepney Green tube station and after a brief walk you come across these magnificent Georgian houses built around 1740. Every time I see them I have to blink; they are in superb condition and great to look at. It was not always thus; they were wonderfully restored by the Spitalsfield Trust at the turn of this century but now look like Georgian show-houses.
The left hand house is at 133/5 Mile End Mile End Road which was a sickly child when taken on by the Trust having lost its top floor from bomb damage during the Second Floor.
The address of right hand one is 137/9 Mile End Road
The story of how the Spitalsfield Trust restored them is here
