Terrace. 1902-1905. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village
Trust. Whitewashed brick with pebbledash to gable ends and pantiles.
Direct entry to living room with scullery beyond. 2 storeys, 6 first-floor
windows. Small-paned windows throughout. Replacement glazed doors to outer
bay of each house with canted bay windows to inner bays. First floor:
paired 3-light casements to each gable with pair of 4-pane casements in
centre. 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.
