10/65 Nos 2 and 4
Pair of semi-detached houses. 1914. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph
Rowntree Village Trust. Through living room plan. 2 storeys, 4 first-floor
windows with central gable. Standard "New Earswick" window panes.
Replacement doors beneath divided overlights flanked by single-pane
casements to outer bays. Single-light casements to central bays. Wide tile
band. First floor: pair of single-light casements to weatherboarded gable
flanked by low 2-light casements. Sprocketed eaves. 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:
