Stacks rising through pitch of roof and 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:
