Full Description

Terrace. 1902-1905. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village Trust. Whitewashed brick and French tile roof. 2 pairs of cottages with through living room plan. 2 storeys, 8 first-floor windows with paired gables to second and third bays, and sixth and seventh bays. Original half- glazed double-doors and standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout. Each house has door beneath fanlight recessed in porch, flanked by 2-light casement and altered opening, now containing a window, but formerly the entrance to W C, and single-pane larder window. Continuous tile trim above all features. First floor: 3-light casements to gables with low 3-light casements to left and right. 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.
