Full Description

Terrace. 1910. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village Trust. Range of 5 living room and scullery cottages with projecting end cottage, forming one side of a 3-sided quadrangle. 2 storeys, 9 first-floor windows with projecting gable to right. Standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout. Right cottage: unglazed door beneath canopy with 3-light casement beneath relieving arch to right. Spinal range: paired cottages, each pair having half-glazed doors recessed in round-arched porches flanked by 3-light casements beneath relieving arches. First floor: 4-light windows except for pairs of 2-light windows over porches. 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.
