History pictures online - Local landmarks

The last working gas lamp in the area was in Warrengate Road
The last working gas lamp in the area was in Warrengate Road. It was removed in 1969.
The seventh chapter of a photographic history of North Mymms has now been reproduced on this site.

Chapter seven deals with some of the surviving and former landmarks in the area.

It 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 interior shot of the old pump house at North Mymms Pumping Station, with the first electrically driven pump.

This replaced the steam driven power unit in July 1966.

The 62-page book, "North Mymms Pictures From the Past", is made up of 12 chapters and contains almost 120 previously unpublished images.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

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

This process takes time and is being carried out by volunteers. The next chapter is likely to be added in February.
