GV II


Terrace of 2 pairs with projecting end cottage to left. 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, 15 bays
with gabled cross wing to right. Half-glazed doors and 4-pane sashes
throughout. Right cottage: pair of windows. Central pair: central 3 bays
break forward with round-arched through passage flanked by doors recessed in
round-arched porches and paired windows. Left pair: entrance bays break
forward with doors recessed in round-arched porches, flanked by paired
windows. First-floor fenestration reflects ground floor with single windows
over doorways. Sprocketed eaves and hipped roof to left. Left end eaves
stacks. 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.
