Terrace of 4 houses. 1914. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree
Village Trust. Brick with French tile roof. Lobby-entry plan. Living room
and scullery to rear. 2 storeys, 8 bays with central 2 bays breaking
forward slightly. Standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout. Central
half-glazed doors recessed in round arched porches, flanked by pairs of 3-

Entrances to Nos 1 and 7 to side. 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.
