They farmed Grange Farm for more than 70 years.

The house contents have not been touched since their late parents’ time and has been described as a ‘timewarp of interesting items, curiosities and war memorabilia’, including a war time surgeon’s amputation kit.

Audrey was very musical and the house has many interesting musical instruments from the 1920s 30s, complete with original sheet music from the era.

In the 1960s cast members from Coventry theatre would stay with the Newton’s, including Michael Crawford.
