Full Description

Terrace consisting of 2 pairs of cottages. c1909-1914. Brick with French tile roof. 2 storeys with single-storey outshuts to either end: 8 first-floor windows. Central front rooms of each pair project forward beneath catslide roof through which rise twin gabled dormers to light the bedrooms above. Standard "New Earswick " panes throughout. Replacement doors flanked by single-light windows to outer bays. Projecting central bays: paired 4-light casements flanked by single light casements. First floor: 2-light casements throughout. Roof lights above each dormer. 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.
