Full Description

Terrace consisting of 2 pairs of cottages. c1909-1914. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village Trust. Parlour and living room plan with hallway entry to side and scullery to rear. Projecting end cottages. 2 storeys, 9 first-floor windows with gabled cross wings to each end. Standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout. Round-arched through passage flanked by pairs of 2-light casements to each cottage. First floor: 2-light half dormer casements to spinal range, pairs of 3-light casements to gable ends. Stacks rising through front pitch of roof and ridge stacks to gable ends. 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.
