Isaac Newton was born at Woolsthorpe Manor, a modest farmhouse, in 1652, and from his bedroom window you can still see the apple tree that famously inspired his thinking on gravity. The tree, a rare Flower of Kent variety which is now over 350 years old, blew down in a storm in the 19th century, but re-rooted itself and still produces apples.
