The Manor House was Isaac's family home, and we’ve set it up to show how it might have looked during 1665-7, his 'year of wonders', with contemporary and some replica furniture and artefacts. Two of our volunteers have been trained to keep the records of the collection up to date – and, even though our collection is relatively modest, it keeps them busy all year round.
Bring a torch with you
Did you know that Isaac Newton was a bit of a writer on walls? In the Manor House we have drawings scratched into the plaster - some are Isaac's, and some are witch marks to keep out evil spirits. The one pictured was done by a visiting maths professor in 1779. As the afternoons draw in, they're best seen with a torch, but don't worry if you forget yours - our volunteers are well-equipped.
