11/43 Nos 1-5 (consecutive) and
archway to right.
Terrace. 1910. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village Trust.
Range of 5 living room and scullery cottages with projecting end cottage,
forming one side of a 3-sided quadrangle. 2 storeys, 9 first-floor windows
with projecting gable to left and archway to gardens to right. Standard
"New Earswick" window panes throughout. Left cottage: unglazed door beneath
canopy with 3-light casement beneath relieving arch to right. Spinal range:
paired cottages, each pair having half-glazed doors recessed in round-arched
porches flanked by 3-light casements beneath relieving arches. Round-headed
archway to right. First floor: 4-light windows except for pairs of 2-light
windows over porches. 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.
