Meadway was an important approach to the central area of Hampstead Garden Suburb. It began with one of Unwin’s ’gates’ which marked the approach to the Suburb from Hoop Lane.
’The Builder’ magazine of 1912 regrets the abandonment of Parker and Unwin’s original design for Meadway Gate. But there is a symmetrical arrangement of houses, four on each side, forming a crescent. They overlook a small garden where the pedestrian access to Meadway can be found.
