Terrace consisting of 4 pairs of cottages. c1909-1914. By Parker and
Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village Trust. Brick with French tile roof.
Lobby entry with living room and scullery beyond; position of front entrance
apparently moved suggesting former direct entry. 2 storeys, 14 first-floor
windows with central gable to each pair. Standard "New Earswick" window
panes. Each pair has central replacement doors flanked by single-pane
casements beneath canopy, and 3-light casements to living room. First
floor: 2-light casements to gables, flanked by 3-light casement, half
dormers except to end bays. 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.
