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 part of one side of a 3-sided quadrangle. 2 storeys, 5 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, with replacement doors in additional 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.
