Terrace consisting of 2 pairs of cottages. c1909-1914. By Parker and
Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village Trust. Brick and French tile roof.
Lobby entry with living room and scullery beyond. 2 storeys, 7 first-floor
windows, with central weatherboarded gable to each pair. Half-glazed doors
and standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout. Central round-arched
through passage now blocked and containing a 2-light casement of non-
standard size. Each pair of cottages has two 4-light canted bay windows
flanked by doors beneath round arches blocked with diagonally-set quarry
tiles. Continuous string course. First floor: central flat-topped 2-light
half dormer flanked by single-pane casements at slightly lower level. Each

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. Sinclair A: Planning and Domestic Architecture at
New Earswick, BA dissertation, University of Reading, 1983. Waddilove L
One Man's Vision, London, 1954.
