Sir Isaac Newton

The plaque was dedicated by Canon Christopher Andrews, Rector of St Wulfram’s and unveiled by Sir Martin Rees, Master of Trinity College, Cambridge and Astronomer Royal, as part of the Gravity Fields Festival in September 2012.


Isaac Newton has a second Blue plaque in the town and surely richly deserved. On 17 July 2013 Scott Mandlebrote, Fellow of Peterhouse College, Cambridge gave the annual Newton lecture at The King’s School. He is also Director of Studies of the Newton Project at the University of Sussex with Prof Rob Iliffe. He was delighted to unveil our Blue plaque on the wall of the Old School in Church Street. Canon Christopher Andrews was present to give a blessing.
