single-light windows to outer bays. Projecting central bays: paired 4-light
casements flanked by single light casements. First floor: 2-light casements
throughout. Roof lights above each dormer. 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.
