Historic Places Panel visits Boston

Historic England's Historic Places Panel visited Boston in Lincolnshire on 28th and 29th September. The Panel heard presentations from the local authority and had a fascinating tour of the town's historic centre and port. The visit focussed on the Council's programme of High Street improvements and potential bid for 'Levelling Up' funding, as well as looking more strategically at the future of the town in the post-Covid and post-Brexit world. The highlight of the visit was the dinner in the Guildhall with catering by the multi-talented students from Boston College. The Panel will be publishing its report later in the year, together with a follow-up visit during 2022.
