Full Description

Pair of semi-detached houses. 1913. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village Trust. Brick with French tile roof. Parlour cottages with projecting outer wings and small squared projection in angle containing staircase with larder. 2 storeys, 6 first-floor windows with paired gables to either end, the inner one being lower and set back. Standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout. Replacement doors flanking 2-light casements share porch carried on wooden posts and bressumer. 3-light casements to projecting outer wings. Archway to right links with that to Nos 18 and 20 (qv). First floor: central pair of low 2-light flat-topped dormers. 2-light casements to smaller gables. 3-light casements to larger gables. 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.
