11/70 Nos 1 and 2


Pair of semi-detached houses. 1902-1905. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph
Rowntree Village Trust. Whitewashed brick with pantile roof. Living room
extended by wide rectangular bay to front with direct entry to side, and
scullery to rear. 2 storeys, symmetrical facade with wide central gable
breaking forward, and 2 first-floor windows to each house. Small-paned
windows throughout. Small 2-light windows to centre flanked by projecting
bay windows with lights arranged 1:4:1, beneath hipped roof. First floor:
3-light casements to central gable flanked by 2-light casements. Hipped
roof. Stacks removed. This is the only occurrence of this plan type in New
Earswick. 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.
