Founded shortly after the Conquest of 1066, Boston rapidly grew to become the most successful English port outside of London. The growth of the wool trade in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries led to the building of St Botolph’s, the largest parish church in the country. During the seventeenth century the town was strongly Puritan, causing some inhabitants to emigrate to America to found the new city of Boston, Massachusetts. Some of the Pilgrim Fathers were imprisoned in the medieval Guildhall, which survives to this day. Boston’s story is brought right up to date, celebrating the complete history of this fabulous Lincolnshire town in a volume that will delight locals and visitors alike.
