Please Come To Boston
Boston in Lincolnshire is not only home to the “The Stump” (St Botolph’s Church), said to the largest parish church in England, but it’s situated just thirty-two miles from Peterborough, home to one of the two newest Medusa Juice Vape Shops. It’s also another thirty-three miles from the store in King’s Lynn, so you can load up on all of your favourite e-liquids and gear while enjoying the Lincolnshire countryside.
Not only is the time spent in the area worth a trip for that alone, but there’s some great landmarks and historical sites you won’t want to miss out on. I’ve already mentioned St Botolph’s Church, but there’s also such places as the Boston Guildhall, Maud Foster Mill, Fydell House, Hussey Tower, and the Church of St Peter and St Paul.
She said, Boston ain’t my kind of town
If you want memorials, Boston is flush in those as well. Boston War Memorial tops the list, but there’s also Pilgrims Father Memorial and Frampton War Memorial. Both the Boston and Frampton Memorials are dedicated to those who lost their lives in the wars, chiefly the 1st and 2nd World Wars. The Pilgrims Father Memorial is actually to commemorate where those ‘Founding Fathers’ of America tried to leave from first before finally being successful with the voyage from Plymouth. I’ve been to Plymouth and seen where they left from and it’s very interesting to me that they tried to leave before that trip and were thwarted. I guess it’s a further testament to the severity of religious persecution they were burdened with and the willpower it must have taken to get away from it in the first place.
The Hussey Tower was erected by Richard Bennington in 1450. He was the collector of customs and excise in Boston, which at that time was the richest port outside of London in England. So, there you go, the history of high taxes and custom charges has nearly always been an issue in this country. Fortunately, you won’t have to worry about that when shopping at Medusa Juice or enjoying your purchases from there. So, sit back and vape to your heart’s content and maybe blow a cloud or two to the memory of those who have went before us, whatever their stories were.
The Maud Foster Mill is still a working mill and has seven floors you can explore. You can purchase locally ground goods and other things while there as well. It’s not a tour for the faint-of-heart though, so keep that in mind.
There ain’t no gold and there ain’t nobody like me
If you enjoy parks and outdoor recreation, you will have plenty to choose from in Boston. Ark Wildlife Park is a local zoo, and there’s also a great little playground in Boston at Playtowers. But there’s also The Boston Woods Trust, RSPB Frampton Marsh Nature Reserve. And finally, check out Witham Way Country Park and Central Park. As you can see, there’s no shortage of places to vape and enjoy the finest e-liquids available from Medusa Juice.
There’s a couple of interesting museums to tour in Boston, the first being The Bubblecar Museum, where you can take a ride in one of the cars, and enjoy cake and tea afterward. The other is in the Boston Guildhall, which is a medieval building. Filled with lots of local information and artifacts, you won’t want to miss this if you’re interested in the area at all.
Boston was long believed to be a Roman town, but this has been widely doubted by modern historians and although there is controversy about how long Boston was inhabited, what is not in question is the importance of this area in English and even American history. With the changes to the Fen area and as different leaders came into power, the control and also the commerce and religious choices changed, making this area susceptible to flux from early on.
Please come to Boston for the springtime…
Fortunately for all of us, today Boston is a lovely and lively place to visit and live. For nightlife, you have a wide variety of places to choose from, pubs, nightclubs and bars are there for the patronage of one and all. The Witham Tavern, The Gliderdrome, The Pilgrim Lounge, Lord Nelson Boston and the Piranha Nightclub are all great choices.
Don’t forget to try out some of the local dining establishments while in Boston. In the moderate budget range you can try Ye Olde Red Lion, Witham and Blues, Los Burritos and The Wheatsheaf Bar and Grill.
For a little less money but still plenty of good things to eat, there’s The Little Kitchen, The Haven Cafe, The Moon Under Water and Tate’s Fish Restaurant. So, regardless of how big your piggy bank may be, you won’t have to bust it to eat in Boston.
Local cuisine consists of a host of fine establishments such as The Ball House, Supreme Inns Haven Restaurant, Malcolm Arms, The Mill, and Good barn’s Yard.
There are several little cafes, coffee and tea shops to enjoy in Boston too and no matter where you are, you can find one nearby. Why not grab yourself a drink and sit along the town centre enjoying one of your new Medusa Juice e-liquids? Be sure to dress for the weather in one of their new tee shirts or hoodies and complete the trip in style.
