Boston Stump with Barclays Bank on the right.

St. Botolph’s Church, Boston, Lincolnshire, is one of the largest churches in Britain not designated as a cathedral. Locals call the tower “the Stump,” though it was finished as designed, topped with an octagonal lantern ringed with pinnacles, considered a classic example of Perpendicular Gothic. Legend says that the name Boston is derived from the church, while there’s no question that Boston, Massachusetts is named for them both. (Wikipedia)
