St Botolph’s, Boston

  • Church Type:
  • Address: St Botolph’s, Boston, United Kingdom

Affectionately known as ‘Boston Stump’ because of it’s large tower, built at a time when the town was a large port developed on the back of the wool trade and second only to London. Internally the finest part of the church is the base of the tower where panelled walls rise to the vault 137ft above the floor. Behind the high alter there is a rather ornate series of canopies containing figures of the apostles and the crucified Christ above a carving of the Last Supper and other scenes and saints.     Photograph courtesy of Dave Hitchborne
