SE 6055 SE NEW EARSWICK POPLAR GROVE
11/47 Nos 2-8 (even)
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 with vented half-
height door below, 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. Sinclair A: Planning and
Domestic Architecture at New Earswick, BA dissertation, University of
