Boston Stump - Added to Places of Worship in East Midlands

I have just added this to the map of places to fly your drone at Drone Scene:

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

St Botolph's Church is the Anglican parish church of Boston, Lincolnshire. It is referred to locally as Boston Stump or simply The Stump.

Construction of the church began in 1309 but the 266 feet (81m) tall tower was not begun until 1450 and completed between 1510 and 1520.

The tower can be seen for miles around; its prominence accentuated by the flat surrounding fenland countryside.

There is plenty of on-street parking nearby. TOAL from the Market Place which gets very busy during the day but tends to be quiet in the early morning. Market days are Wednesday & Saturday.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 11/11/2023. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.

How / where did it get that name from @pcaouolte ? :thinking:

Due to the shape of the tower without a spire. It had the appearance of a stump during construction and it looks like a stump rising out of the ground from a distance.
