Terrace consisting of 2 pairs of cottages. c1909-1914. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village Trust. Brick and French tile roof. Lobby entry with living room and scullery beyond. 2 storeys, 7 first-floor windows, with central weatherboarded gable to each pair. Half-glazed doors and plate glass sashes to ground floor and 4-pane sashes to first floor throughout. Central round-arched through passage. Each pair of cottages has two 4-light canted bay windows flanked by doors beneath round arches containing decorative tiles. First floor: central flat-topped 2-light half dormer flanked by single-pane casements at slightly lower level. Each gable contains a pair of 3-light casements. 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 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.
