An artist plans to make a second stained glass window for Grantham’s railway station.

The theme of the planned window is Isaac Newton and follows on from a window installed at the station to commemorate steam locomotive The Mallard.

Nottingham artist Mike Brown is hoping to carry through the project. He said: “Many people kindly contributed to and have since positively commented on the Mallard stained glass window in the waiting room at Grantham station. So many, in fact, that I would like to make a second.

“2016 is the 350th year since Newton returned home from Cambridge University. The influence of Newton can be found everywhere today. He invented calculus, figured out the composition of light and gave us the laws of gravity and motion which govern the universe.”

There are a number of ways people can help Mr Brown fund the not-for-profit project. To find out more about it and how you can help, go to his website at dmichaelbrown1.word press.com
