House. c1909-1914. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village Trust.
Brick with French tile roof. 2 storeys with attics, 2 bays, and single-
storey extension to right. Standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout.

flanking single-light casement to hipped-roof extension. First floor: 3-
light casements. Attic: 3-light casement dormers. Sprocketed eaves, end
stacks. 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.
