First floor: 2 small casements over central doors flanked by pairs of 3 light casements to gable ends. Roof lights flank the gables. Hipped roof. 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 exteneively 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.
