SE 6055 NE NEW EARSWICK SYCAMORE AVENUE
9/58 Nos 29-35 (odd)
Terrace of 4 houses. 1914. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree
Village Trust. Brick with French tile roof. Lobby-entry plan with living
room and scullery to rear. 2 storeys, 9 bays with central 3 bays breaking
forward slightly. 4-pane sashes throughout. Central round arch to through
passage flanked by half-glazed doors recessed in round arches. Pairs of
sashes to inner bays, single windows to outer bays on both floors. Hipped
roof with sprocketed eaves. Stacks removed. Entrances to Nos 29 and 35 at
side. 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.
