Full Description

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.
