Terrace consisting of 2 pairs of cottages. 1909. 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 glazed 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
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.
