Boston’s most iconic landmark is set for the next phase of its renovation project...but The Stump still needs your help to complete the project.
Now that work has finished on St Botolph’s impressive north face, the £250,000 repair and renovation of the Medieval Cotton Chapel can get underway.
But the director of development at the church Peter Coleman urged supporters to continue to come forward.
He said: “We are working hard to keep the building in a good condition which, given the current economic climate, is becoming increasingly difficult, so please help us keep one of this country’s heritage icons preserved so people can enjoy its beauty for many years to come.”
The first stage of the chapel project will be to replace the south roof, which has been funded by a £50,000 grant from the National Churches Trust, a charity which supports Christian places of worship
This will be followed by a two year extensive programme of stone replacement and repairs both inside and out.
There stain glass will also be restored.
The 14th century chapel was built as a tribute to non-conformist minister John Cotton, who served at The Stump before sailing to Boston, Massachusets.
There are a number of ways you can show support for the Boston Stump’s restoration projects:
*Make a donation towards the project
*Have a message carved into one of the new stones as part of the ‘Sponsor a Stone’ initiative
*Purchase one of the pieces of historic stone that will be removed as part of the project
