Swinegate

The second signboard looks towards St Wulfram’s church from Swinegate and shows all the historic buildings along with another cartoon which depicts Isaac Newton’s fight with Arthur Storer in the churchyard. Isaac was lodging with Arthur’s mother at the time. They both went to the Grammar school but long after, they became good friends and corresponded over the position in the night sky of Halley’s Comet. Arthur became America’s first astronomer and of course Isaac too became quite famous.
