Colsterworth, St John Baptist
Colsterworth was the birthplace of Sir Isaac Newton - or at least the adjoining hamlet of Woolsthorpe.
The church of the St John the Baptist is a mixture of Norman, Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular work. The chancel though is by James Fowler in 1876.
The Victorians with their usual sensitivity installed an organ which largely obscured a Newton family monument and sundial carved by Isaac at the age of 9. There are plans to remove the organ
