11/31 Nos 1-7 (odd)


Terrace consisting of 2 pairs of cottages. c1909-1914. Brick with French
tile roof. 2 storeys with single-storey outshuts to either end, 8 first-
floor windows. Central front rooms of each pair project forward beneath
catslide roof through which rise twin gabled dormers to light the bedrooms
above. Standard "New Earswick" panes throughout. Replacement doors flanked
by 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. Sinclair A: Planning and Domestic Architecture at
New Earswick, BA dissertation, University of Reading, 1983. Waddilove L:
