At the north end of the High Street, where the road dips and veers sharply to become Station Road, sits a railed-off garden at the foot of Tarry Hill. This is the Jubilee Garden, with a profusion of shrubs dominated by the oak tree planted to celebrate King George V's Silver Jubilee in 1935. Around this garden are grouped a fine collection of old houses, many of which are believed to date from the eighteenth century. A handsome farmhouse, the village's former workhouse, the old Swineshead Gasworks, a colourful collection of cottages and an Edwardian red-brick house adjoining coach-house form a rough triangle at the meeting of High Street, Station Road and Tarry Hill. The road up the hill leads to the elegant Tarry Hill House and Tarry Hill Farm, set at right - angles and affording the passer-by a view of Boston 'Stump', eight miles distant across the fen.
