A new book has been released detailing the history of Boston Guildhall.

Covering 600 years of history it includes murderous deeds, ghostly goings-on and people who changed Boston and the world.

Co-author Andrew Malkin said: “We set out to tell the story of the Guildhall and its place in the history of Boston using as a focus items on display in the Guildhall Museum.

“What unfolded were amazing stories about local people, such as the Pilgrim Fathers and famous explorers who had an influence on not only Boston but other parts of the world.”

The book is available for £3.50 from Boston Guildhall, which is open Wednesday-Saturday, from 10.30am-3.30pm. Pictured above are council employees Andrew Malkin, Polly Stanley and Emma Staff who helped put the book together with Luke Skerritt.
