A stained glass window commemorating Sir Isaac Newton has been proposed to go alongside the Mallard window at Grantham railway station.

Nottingham artist Mike Brown is raising money for the window. He says between £4,000 and £5,000 will be needed.

Mr Brown said: “To celebrate and hopefully raise awareness of Isaac Newton I would like to produce a celebratory stained glass window that will be located in the waiting room at Grantham Station next to the Mallard window that I produced last year.

“September 2016 is the 350th anniversary of Sir Isaac Newton returning to his home in Woolsthorpe. 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.”

He added: “I’m very proud of the Mallard window and the kind comments that people have made. At a time when everything is so rushed and hurried and the weather can be wet and cold as it has been, I hope that the waiting room on platform 2 gives people a chance to pause and think with some beautiful colours coming through the window.”

Anybody who would like to make a donation towards the Newton window should go to Mr Brown’s website at dmichaelbrown1.wordpress.com where details of how to pay can be found.
