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. 3-light
casements to projecting outer wings. Archway to right links with that to
Nos 18 and 20 (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.
