Cowper and Newton Museum

This museum is housed in 'Orchard Side', the former home of 18th century writer and poet William Cowper. Among Cowper's friends was Rev. John Newton, co-author of the hymn 'Amazing Grace' and active anti-slavery campaigner. The museum contains exhibits illustrating the life and times of the two men.

Garden: Carefully accurate restoration of 18th century gardens of keen gardener William Cowper are an interesting part of the museum documenting the lives of Cowper and Rev. John Newton.
