9/60 Nos 22 and 24 with
archway to left


Pair of semi-detached houses. 1914. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph
Rowntree Village Trust. Lobby-entry plan with living room and scullery side
by side and coal shed and WC in outbuilding. Brick with French tile roof.
2 storeys, 2 first-floor windows with right bay breaking forward beneath
gable. Half-glazed doors and standard "New Earswick" window panes
throughout. Right cottage: 2-light casement with door beneath segmental
arch to left. Left cottage: door beneath segmental arch with 2-light
casement to right and single-light casement to left. Round arch to left
conceals outbuilding with hipped roof. First floor: to right a 3-light
casement; to left, a flat-topped 2-light casement half dormer. 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.
