Terrace of 4 cottages. c1907. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree
Village Trust. Brick with pantile roof. 2 pairs of through living room
cottages divided by through passage, with projecting end cottages. 2
storeys, 9 first-floor windows. Gabled end bays and 2 gables to spinal
range. Standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout. Round-arched
through passage flanked by pairs of 3-light fixed windows beneath soldier
arches to both spinal range and gabled end bays. Entrance porches to side
elevations. First floor: central flat-topped 2-light half dormer flanked by
pairs of 2-light fixed windows in gables to spinal range, and 3-light fixed
windows to gabled end bays. Sprocketed eaves. 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.
