Anglia's 'Here and Now' series was always keen to report on unusual stories and people in the region and Canon Boston was certainly worth a visit. He talks a cautious reporter through his collection of sporting guns - some dating back to the 15th century. Norfolk is home to many large estates where driven shoots take place and in the mid 60s a number of local gunsmiths were kept busy throughout the county.
