10/21 Nos 73 and 75


Pair of semi-detached houses. c1909-1914. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph
Rowntree Village Trust. Brick with French tile roof. Parlour cottages. 2
storeys, 2 first-floor windows with shared central gable. Standard "New
Earswick" window panes throughout. Pair of 2-light casements flanked by 3-
light casements. First floor: 2-light casements. Weatherboarding to gable
end. Stacks removed. Entrances to side elevations. 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:
