Since 1309 Boston Stump has been an iconic landmark on the skyline of Lincolnshire, attracting the affection of local people and the admiration of visitors. It enjoys a reputation for high quality musical, cultural and worship events.
The Parish of Boston has received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund for our ‘Passion for People’ project. This project will develop St Botolph’s as a centre of heritage and cohesion and enable the telling of stories of Boston’s role in local and international history. Its interpretation of Boston’s heritage will enrich the life of the community and attract more visitors to the town.
St Botolph’s Church has been granted Development funding of £160k, this is to progress plans to apply for a full grant of £1.2 million by the end of next year. The total cost of the project will be approximately £2.2 million: half of which will need to be raised by us in partnership funding.
