This is a view of the tower of the tallest and one of the most curious parish churches in England; St Botolph’s in the town of Boston in Lincolnshire. The name Boston is actualy a shortened version of “Botolph’s Stone” or “Botolph’s Town”. Since the Pilgrims who fled to America founded the city of Boston, Massachusetts, it’s essentially this church that gave Boston its name.
For many centuries the tower, that can be seen for many miles around, has been called Boston Stump or The Stump by locals. It is 272 feet tall and 40 foot wide.
