GRAVITATIONAL forces pulled 318 people into Ayscoughfee Hall for a day dedicated to Lincolnshire’s world-renowned scientist Sir Isaac Newton.

Wig making and the physics of light kept visitors enthralled and gravity was demonstrated as fruit was dropped from the hall’s balcony as a tribute to Newton’s apple moment. Sir Isaac belonged to Spalding Gentleman’s Society, whose founder was Maurice Johnson II, ‘the antiquary’ of Ayscoughfee Hall.
