Welcome to Boston - St Botolph's Church: The Stump is the most notable landmark in England
Boston is a town and small port in Lincolnshire on the east coast of England. It is the largest town of the wider Borough of Boston local government district.
Boston's most notable landmark is St Botolph's Church (The Stump), the largest parish church in England, with one of the taller towers in England visible in the flat lands of Lincolnshire for miles. Residents of Boston are known as Bostonians.
The order of importance was the other way round, when the Boston quarter of Skirbeck developed at the head of the Haven, which lies under the present Market Place. The reason for the original development of the town, away from the centre of Skirbeck, was that Boston lay on the point where navigable tidal water was alongside the land route and the three routes to the south of Boston were:
-The coastal route, on the marine silts
-The Sleaford route, into Kesteven, passed via Swineshead
-The Salters’ Way route into Kesteven, left Holland from Donington.
