11/8 Nos 18 and 20 and archway
Pair of semi-detached houses. 1913. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph
Rowntree Village Trust. Brick with French tile roof. Parlour cottages with
projecting outer wings and small squared projection in angle containing
staircase with larder. 2 storeys, 6 first-floor windows with paired gables
to either end, the inner one being lower and set back. Standard "New
Earswick" window panes throughout. Replacement doors flanking 2-light
casements share porch carried on wooden posts and bressumer. Single-pane
windows to larders and 3-light casements to projecting wings. Archway to
left links with that to Nos 22 and 24 (qv). First floor: central pair of
low 2-light flat-topped dormers. 2-light casements to smaller gables. 3-
light casements to larger gables. Stacks removed. The particular
significance of New Earswick lies in its contribution to the development of
low cost housing in Britain. Experience gained and practices introduced
here were incorporated extensively into the Tudor Walters Report of 1918
which was instrumental in the passing of the Addison Act of 1919. Plans
from New Earswick influenced the Government Manual on low cost housing which
followed the Act. Sinclair A: Planning and Domestic Architecture at New
Earswick, BA dissertation, University of Reading, 1983. Waddilove L:
