12/48 Nos 10-16 (even)


Terrace. 1902-1905. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village
Trust. Brick and French tile. 2 pairs of cottages with through living room
plan. 2 storeys, 6 first-floor windows with wide central gable. Original
half-glazed double doors and standard "New Earswick" window panes
throughout. Each house has door beneath fanlight flanked by 2-light
casement and replacement fixed window in altered opening, formerly the
entrance to the W C. First floor: 3-light casements to centre and pairs of
low 3-light casements to outer bays. 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:
