12/10 Nos 26 and 28


Pair of semi-detached houses. c1909-1914. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph
Rowntree Village Trust. Brick and French tile roof. Through living room
plan. 2 storeys, 4 first-floor windows with a pair of central gables.
Replacement doors, that to No 28 glazed, and standard "New Earswick" window
panes with soldier arches to ground floor. Central pair of 3-light
casements flanked by doors beneath canopies, with single-pane windows to
outer bays. First floor: 2-light casements to gables and low 2-light
casements to outer bays. 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: One Man's
Vision, London, 1954.
