Princess Anne will visit Boston Stump to officially open its new ‘Puritan Path’ attraction.

HRH the Princess Royal will attend a dedication service on July 24 and will also view the completed restoration work on the north face of the tower and planned work for the Cotton Chapel.
The royal is a regular visitor to the town as patron of the Restoration and Development Appeal and was last in Boston in July 2012.
A spokesman for St Botolph’s Church said: “The Puritan Path is the only memorial in the country celebrating the Puritan men and women from the congregation of St Botolph’s Church who left England for the New World in the 1630s. 
“The story of the founding of Boston, Massachusetts, is a very important but little-recognised part of the heritage of St Botolph’s Church, the town and the country.”
