Boston Manor
 (голосов: 0)
Boston ManorBoston Manor. This Boston has no connection with its more famous namesakes in Lincolnshire or the USA. Known during the 14th century as Bordeston from Bords (a personal name) and Old English tun, 'a farm - means 'Bords farm', which in its turn has been corrupted to Burston, then Boston during the 16th century. The Manor originally belonged to the convent of St Helen’s Bishopsgate and its ownership has changed hands many times during the course of history. Boston Manor is noted for its Tudor and Jacobean Mansion - 'Boston House'.

The station was opened on 1 May 1883 as BOSTON ROAD, re¬named BOSTON MANOR on 11 December 1911, and the rebuilt station was completed 25 March 1934.
