Church of St James, Church End Road, Freiston - Boston

Large parish church of C12 and later date, with pre-Conquest origins, formerly the church of Freiston Priory. The church forms one element of the wider Priory and post-Dissolution complex. There is significant direct risk of damage to fabric and loss of associated archaeological remains which comprise an important part of the setting of the church. This is due to works immediately adjacent to the church, but latterly beyond the control of the church authorities.
