10/14 Nos 66 and 68


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, 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.
