Terrace consisting of 2 pairs of cottages. 1907. By Parker and Unwin, for
Joseph Rowntree Village Trust. Brick and French tile roof. Lobby entry with
living room and scullery beyond. 2 storeys, 6 first-floor windows with central
gables to each pair. Standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout.
Replacement doors in additional porches to 2 central and outer bays with pairs of
canted bay windows between breaking tile band at cornice level. First floor:
2 small casements over central doors flanked by pairs of 3 light casements to gable
ends. Roof lights flank the gables. 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 exteneively 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.
