Terrace consisting of 4 shops. Brick with French tile roof. 2 storeys with
attics, 14 first-floor windows with fourth and eleventh bays having Mansard
gables at attic level. Standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout
except plate glass shop fronts with central half-glazed doors except for 2-
fielded-panel in architraves in gable bays, serving as entrances to flats
above. Ground floor sheltered by tiled canopy. First floor: 2-light
casements. Attics: 2-light dormer casements except for those in gables to
fourth and eleventh bays. Hipped roof. Ridge stacks. 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:
