In Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth near Grantham, Lincolnshire is a house, Woolsthorpe Manor and within the grounds of this house, an apple tree. The very tree a young Sir Isaac Newton sat under which started his exploration of gravity. We discover how one of England's greatest minds, science, and Lincolnshire is linked to Britain's slaving past.
