GV


Pair of semi-detached houses. 1913. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph
Rowntree Village Trust. Brick with French tile roof. Parlour cottages with
projecting outer wings and small squared projection in angle containing
staircase with larder. 2 storeys, 6 first-floor windows with paired gables
to either end, the inner one being lower and set back. Standard "New
Earswick" window panes throughout. Replacement doors flanking 2-light
casements share porch carried on wooden posts and bressumer. 3-light
casements to projecting outer wings. First floor: central pair of low 2-
light flat-topped dormers. 2-light casements to smaller gables. 3-light
casements to larger gables. 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.
