SE 6155 SW NEW EARSWICK POPLAR GROVE
(east side)


12/49 Nos 18-24 (even)


GV II


Terrace. 1902-1905. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village
Trust. Whitewashed brick and French tile roof. 2 pairs of cottages with
through living room plan. 2 storeys, 8 first-floor windows with paired
gables to second and third bays, and sixth and seventh bays. Original half-
glazed double-doors and standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout.
Each house has door beneath fanlight recessed in porch, flanked by 2-light
casement and altered opening, now containing a window, but formerly the
entrance to W C, and single-pane larder window. Continuous tile trim above
all features. First floor: 3-light casements to gables with low 3-light
casements to left and right. 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
