Tim Sylvester tells us (in 2002):
There have been many works on the Witham, from Roman times to the modern period. In an Atlas for Boston - Frank Molyneux and Neil Wright, p36 it is recorded that the area of Boston known as "Old River Bed" holds 74 acres. I believe this description resulted from the enclosure of land relating to the old course of the River Witham, which was substantially altered to improve navigations and drainage between Boston and Lincoln. The Witham Drainage Act was approved in 1761. The proud boastings of Boston's corporations before the opening of the Grand Sluice at Boston as part of the scheme drove one disappointed visitor of the opening ceremony to verse following the opening day ceremony:
"Boston, Boston, Boston!
Thou has naught to boast on,
But a Grand Sluice, and a high steeple;
A proud, conceited, ignorant people
And a cost where souls are lost on."
