Full Description

Terrace consisting of~2 pairs of cottages. 1907. 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 flanking pairs of canted bay windows which break 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.
