About Boston Preservation Trust
Boston Preservation Trust was established in 1935 to safeguard the future of Fydell House. Since that time it has grown in membership and range of operations, and today is a charitable organisation engaged in Preservation, Education and Campaigning. We hope that you will help our work either by donating to our conservation fund, becoming a member, or actively joining in our campaigns.
Everyone who comes to Boston either to visit or to live cannot fail to be impressed by the architectural grandeur of the town, it’s location in the subtle beauty of the fens, and the extraordinary sense of peace and continuity that is such a profound part of the local countryside. To ensure that this precious town and surrounding villages are passed on intact to future generations is the work of the Boston Preservation Trust. We serve the town and borough in so many ways that it is almost certain there is a way for your to get involved – perhaps by attending one of our talks and classes, volunteering to help keep Fydell House open to the public, or helping our Civic Group keep an eye on local planning applications.
Remember that we all benefit if the town is kept in the best possible condition. Boston is our shared home, and we urge you to help us preserve the best and improve those areas that need attention. Together we can save Boston for the future.
Revolting peasants will run riot during Boston's second International Hanse Day! The Peasants' Revolt will be singing and dancing around the Knights of Skirbeck whilst children can try on armour and sign up for a Crusade. The Lincoln Waites, a nationally renowned group of “Medieval Minstrels” will delight the Stump with their singing and at 12.00 noon a trumpeter on the Stump Tower will herald the medieval procession to the tomb of Boston's own Hanse merchant, Wissulus. Also in the Stump will be a demonstration of spinning of Lincoln Longwool – the main source of Boston’s medieval wealth.
It’s all happening on Saturday 27th May between 10am and 2pm in Boston Market Place and the Stump
