Woolsthorpe Manor was a star-gazer’s paradise during last week’s half-term break.

The National Trust property hosted ‘Space Exploration at Woolsthorpe’, inspired by the genius of Isaac Newton, who was born there in 1643.

It included a programme of science activities and experiments in the manor’s Science Discovery Centre, between Thursday and Sunday. And also on Thursday, visitors were able to explore the skies when darkness fell, joined by astronomers from local groups and a team from the National Space Centre, who brought along a planetarium. Various talks were given on space, science and telescopes.
