Boston’s connection to America to be explored by Michael Portillo


Former Cabinet minister Michael Portillo is set to feature Boston as part of his latest series on Great British railways next Tuesday.

The town will feature on Michael Portillo’s Great British Railway Journey’s from 6.30pm on BBC2.

The show will see him, equipped with an 1800s Bradshaw’s guide, visit Boston with his crew and discover its American connections.

Mr Portillo visited the town last March for a fundraising event held at St Botolph’s Church.
