Grantham

From Lincoln we travelled south, first via Grantham to take a look at its most famous son, Isaac Newton. His house was actually a few miles outside the town but we’ll stretch a point. The statue is slap bang in Grantham town centre.

Right beside the statue there was an unusual War Memorial commemorating those who had lost their lives in various wars, campaigns, peace keeping operations or terrorist actions since 1945.

There must be a War Memorial to both World Wars but it wasn’t in the part of the town centre we walked through.

The town looked pretty down at heel. There was one Art Deco building.

Could this have been a Burton’s?
