Signs point tourists to Boston
Travellers are now being pointed in the direction of Boston, historic market town, thanks to new brown tourist signs which have been erected on the outskirts.
The nationally-recognised official brown signs highlight five main visitor attractions - Boston Stump, the Guildhall Museum, Maud Foster Mill, Fydell House and Blackfriars Theatre.
The signs have been erected east and west of Boston on the A52, north and south on the A16 and on the A1121. They have been paid for as part of the Boston Market Place regeneration scheme - part of an overall project to make Boston a better place to visit. Funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) in partnership with Lincolnshire County Council and Boston Borough Council paid for the £2 million refurbishment.
Cllr Peter Bedford, leader of Boston Borough Council, said: "They will encourage people to drive into Boston to see what we have to offer rather than drive around. We have plenty to offer in the town centre and are showing support for businesses in Boston."
