Hi all 👋🏻
Today I want to share with you all a selection of photographs I took around Woolsthorpe Manor, near Grantham, Lincolnshire - in England 🇬🇧
The farm house of Isaac Newton and his tree.
All photographs are taken 31 December 2016 on my iPhone 5s at that time.
The location of the tree and his house you can find on Google maps here, see the yellow star ⭐️ :
Address: Woolsthorpe Manor House, Water Ln, Grantham NG33 5PD, United Kingdom
More information about the farmhouse you can find Here in Wikipedia!
”Woolsthorpe Manor in Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth, near Grantham, Lincolnshire, England, is the birthplace and was the family home of Sir Isaac Newton. He was born there on 25 December 1642 (old calendar).
At that time, it was a yeoman's farmstead, principally rearing sheep.
Newton returned here in 1666 when Cambridge University closed due to the plague, and here, he performed many of his most famous experiments, most notably his work on light and optics. This is also said to be the site where Newton, observing an apple fall from a tree, was inspired to formulate his law of universal gravitation.”
”Isaac Newton recounted to his contemporary William Stukeley how an apple tree in the orchard inspired him to work on his law of universal gravitation.
Dendrochronology confirms one of the trees in the orchard to be over 400 years old, having regrown from roots surviving from a tree which blew down in 1820. It is attended by gardeners, secured with a fence, and cared for by National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty.”
Let me show you the house and the tree now.
Walking further around it…
You just see how old it is.
The orchard with other trees.
And the famous tree that is over 400 years old and inspired Sir Isaac Newton.
A plaque next to it:
It was so fascinating to wander around here. And know he walk these grounds…. 😁
We also entered the house and saw how they lived in that time. There is a café to get some warm drinks in the winter months and something to eat. ☕️🍰🥪
In the barn next to it, we could even interact and experiment with some science ourselves. ✨✨⚡️⚡️
Fun for the whole family 😉 even adults liked it… who visited without children.
