Listing Text

9/67 Nos 5-9 (consecutive)


Terrace of 5 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, 14 bays with entrance bays breaking
forward slightly. Round-arched through passage to sixth bay flanked by
half-glazed doors recessed in round arched porches. Half-glazed door
recessed in round-arched porch to twelfth bay. 4-pane sashes throughout.
Sprocketed eaves, hipped roof. Stacks removed. Entrances to Nos 5 and 9 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.
