The co-author of Crap Towns Returns, which is out today, has spoken to The Standard about his visit to Boston.
Sam Jordison visited the town around Easter time after a number of nominations came in for it to be included in the book.
It has been listed 44th out of 100 UK towns.
“There were boarded up nightclubs and lots of people just hanging around looking pretty aimless,” he said.
“It feels like quite a depressed town but it clearly has potential to be a really good place to live. Hopefully you guys there can turn things around a bit.”
Boston made the 100-strong shortlist earlier this year, sparking a big debate on whether it deserved to be labelled ‘crap’.
The book gives a tongue-in-cheek look at the history of the town and highlights local issues such as obesity and immigration.
London came in at number one while in Lincolnshire, Louth also made it in - being placed at number 32.
