The power of history

Last week we went to Lancaster and, in our way up north, we decided to stop and rest at a National Trust property. Being very well located off A1,we choose Woolsthorpe Manor, the place where Isaac Newton was born and lived for some time. While initially was meant just as a relaxing stop on our way, it became a very powerful experience when we saw THE apple tree that he said inspired him and we saw his room, where he devised various experiments and started some of his main theories. It’s unbelievable that after so many centuries, we can still see this place and experience some of the atmosphere that he lived and worked in.
