This seven-storey windmill, with its five patent sails, stands tall and proud as one of England's largest functional windmills. Built in 1819, the mill changed hands a number of times before coming in to the ownership of the Waterfield family, who restored it to its former glory after it had fallen on hard times. In 1988 Mr. Basil Rickett, great-grandson of one of the original builders, graced the official reopening ceremony of the mill. Today, this mill is open to visitors on Wednesdays, Saturdays and bank holidays. You can climb all seven floors of the windmill, and watch how this mechanical wonder works its magic, for a small fee. There is also a mill shop which sells history books, souvenirs and organic flour that is milled at the Maud Foster Windmill. A part of the granary is available for hire as a self-catering accommodation fit for two.
In 1607, a group of puritans decided to flee to the Netherlands in a Dutch vessel to find some religious freedom. Betrayed by the Captain of the vessel, they were caught and imprisoned for over a month. The men tried to make another attempt and this time achieved success. These men were known as the Pilgrim Fathers and on the 350th anniversary of the event in 1957, the Boston Bourough Council decided to build this monument as a dedication.
Standing tall since many centuries, Boston Guildhall is a majestic medieval building asserting the richness of the history of Boston. The place offers a plethora of features, including the narration of stories and experiences pertaining to the Guild of St Mary, the establishment of the Corporation of Boston and the well-known trial and imprisonment of the Pilgrim Fathers. The venue also has an old museum, with its highlight being the intricate Egyptian antiquities. This stunning building is also available for hire for weddings and private functions.
The Boston Stump, or the tall tower, is also the name that they call the Church by. The 83 meters(272 foot) high Tower and the entrance form an imposing frame as you admire the structure from a distance. But as you get closer, however, you are increasingly charmed by the ornate details of the numerous elements such as the arches, the windows, the stained glass, and the spires. You’d be surprised to know that the sturdy bell tower has not been restored since the 16th Century C.E. It can be accessed via a staircase. The main hall is spacious and the ambience is sublime.
