West front and tower of Saint Botolph's parish church in Boston, Lincolnshire.

"Beginning with the exterior, the chief feature of interest on approaching the Church from a distance is the tower with its light and elegant octagonal lantern. This is divided into four stages...The summit is crowned with a lofty parapet of light traceried work and pinnacles, each terminated by a vane."

Text by the Vicar of Boston G B Blenkin from the book 'The Fen and Marshland Churches'.
