Very nice! Certainly a landmark for miles around, you can see it from Hunstanton across the Wash. The only thing that ruined the ambience of the church for me was that somr prat had spray painted a dick on the wall by the river- the minds of these people????
Looks nice. What's Boston like? Its always struck me as somewhere likely to be a backwater. I hear its got a very significant Portuguese population though (agricultural workers), which seems strange to imagine in rural Lincolnshire.
The Portugese aren't welcomed by the Bostonians however, there have been a few racial attacks. This is even though the locals don't want to do the crappy work and never have done, before the Portugese it was Sheffield Dole moonlighters who did the crappy work.
But yes, like most parts of the UK, Lincolnshire is being changed for the better by immigrants.
boston is your wealthy lincolnshire market town (like stamford or sleaford). a mixture of lots of money and poor farm workers, it also has one of the tallest hospitals in the country amazingly.
PM shouldnt be so predjudiced either, it is the home to zyra too and there was a very cool goth piercing studio in a 14th century house right next to the stump. there's plenty of english eccentricities if you only look. i dont remember seeing local londoners in macdonalds in london, so its the same everywhere. dont be so predjudiced, lincoln even has a gay drag caberet strip bar now!
anyway boston is nice, but boring. i was bored after about 3 hours there. makes a nice afternoon out but i wouldnt recommend spending more time there.
The original Mayflower didn't actually set sail from Plymouth, it started in Boston, Lincolnshire taking all the religious wack-jobs from round there, it went via Plymouth. The local football team are called the Pilgrims.
The Boston stump isn't a cathedral either, its a just a big church.
stump because the tower was originally meant to be even taller! they didnt finish it. it's only 83 metres tall right now, the third tallest church in the world to roof after liverpool cathedral and the national cathedral in washington d.c. it is as large as a cathedral, boston used to be one of englands biggest and richest towns.
