Publisher's description: Boston, in the county of Lincolnshire, England, is a small town that has had a big place in history, as a port with important links to Europe and America -- where homesick emigrants would later bestow its name on their new settlement. Boston, Lincolnshire examines its history as reflected in the town's buildings and townscape from medieval times to the present day. The authors discuss its religious and public architecture and important influences on the town's development, including its agriculture and manufacturing, its transportation history, its physical expansion throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and the problems created by the town's remoteness as well as its low-wage agricultural economy. A final chapter looks at how successful regeneration projects have been in Boston and how these can be built upon to promote a more prosperous future.
