The tenth chapter of a photographic history of North Mymms has now been reproduced on this site.

Chapter ten deals with Bell Bar and is part of the latest work produced by the North Mymms Local History Society, featuring photographs dating back more than 130 years.

The collection of pictures includes an aerial view of Bell Bar taken in 1948 showing the Great North Road, the Cock o' The North pub and Brookmans Park golf course.

To view the pictures in the tenth chapter click here.

The 62-page book, "North Mymms Pictures From the Past", is made up of 12 chapters and contains almost 120 previously unpublished images.

The book was selling for just 2 but the entire print run of 1,000 copies was snapped up within weeks of going on sale. The funding for "North Mymms Pictures From the Past" came from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the North Mymms Parish Council.

All images have been heavily compressed to assist download speeds. The photographs in the actual book are much clearer and larger.

The remaining two chapters will be added over the coming weeks. To view the index for the book click here. Don't bother clicking on any chapters other than the first ten just now because all you will get are holding pages saying they are still being built.
