Explore Newton’s Trail
A new Newton’s Trail which includes his birthplace at Woolsthorpe Manor has mapped off-the-beaten track locations accessible by foot and bike as well as a car. Click the map to download the PDF.
The trail takes in the villages of Colsterworth, Burton le Coggles, Corby Glen, Irnham, Edenham, Grimsthorpe, Swayfield and Swinstead via a network of quiet country lanes.
Established attractions such as Easton Walled Gardens and Grimsthorpe Castle are listed alongside the area’s beautiful churches, a retreat house, art gallery, award winning coffee shop and historic hostelries.
It’s the brain child of Lady Ursula Cholmeley, responsible for transforming 12 acres of Easton Walled Gardens’ derelict gardens into the floral and gardening paradise of today, and Grimsthorpe Castle manager Ray Biggs.
