England Day 1: Cowper Newton Museum Garden

On our first day in the UK, we were taking it easy. Since the Cowper Newton Museum was literally right across the street from the pancake parlour in which we were eating breakfast, it seemed like a good idea to check it out. This museum is dedicated to two famous locals – William Cowper, a Georgian poet, and John Newton (a curate/abolitionist). Together they wrote hymns, to include Amazing Grace.

Since the house is original to the Georgian period, it’s kept as it was when Cowper lived there in the middle/late 18th century. We didn’t go into the museum/house itself, since we had a stroller, but it has two really nice gardens – one being Georgian, and the back one being Victorian. The weather was lovely and the gardens were so pretty.
