(west side)


10/23 Nos 61 and 63


GV II


Pairs of cottages. c1909-1914. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree
Village Trust. Brick and French tile roof. Lobby entry with living room
and scullery beyond. 2 storeys, 2 first-floor windows, with central
weatherboarded gable. Replacement doors and standard "New Earswick" window
panes throughout. Two 4-light canted bay windows flanked by doors beneath
blocked round arches. First floor: gable contains a pair of 3-light
casements. Hipped roof. 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.
