Boston House Removals
Located in Lincolnshire’s picturesque Fenland is Boston; a classic market town steeped in history. In times gone by, Boston was a centre of trade, second only to London. The Haven is the tidal river that flows into the Port of Boston which provides access for shipping, hence why the town was such a hub for business.
Just a 25-minute drive from Boston is the Britannia Smeeton Panton office, located in Heckington. The friendly team at Britannia Smeeton Panton are ready and waiting to help with moves throughout Lincolnshire and also offer a variety of storage options to their customers.

Days Out in Boston
A fantastic place to visit in Boston is St Botolph’s, colloquially known as the Boston Stump. St Botolph’s is a parish church and is famed for its extraordinarily tall tower. Visitors can tour the church and scale the 209 steps to the top of the tower for a complete experience.
Built in the 1390s, Boston Guildhall is an incredible medieval structure. Visitors flock to the well-preserved building that still has a plethora of its original features. If the walls of the Guildhall could speak, they would tell tales of Henry VIII’s dissolve of the Guild, the history of the Guild of St Mary, and the trial and imprisonment of the Pilgrim Fathers.
If you want to take to the water, a trip on Boston Belle is enjoyed by those young and old. The Boston Belle is a well-established passenger boat that operates from Boston port. Cruises take place along the River Witham, or out into the sea. There is inside and outside seating for when the British summer weather becomes unpredictable.
