There is a tree in front of the college, which people call the Newton's apple tree. You can read a plaque below the tree saying:

"Sir Isaac Newton's Apple tree. This apple tree is a descendant by vegetative propagation of a tree which grew in the garden of Woolsthorpe Manor, near Grantham, and which is reputed to be the tree from which fell the apple that helped Newton to formulate his theory of gravitation. The original tree is said to have died about 1815-1820. The variety is 'Flower of Kent'. "
