History pictures online - Marshmoor
The final chapter of a photographic history of North Mymms has now been reproduced on this site.
Chapter twelve deals with Marshmoor, an area just east of Welham Green.
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 one of Marshmoor Cafe on the Great North Road on Christmas Day 1952. The cafe was a popular meeting place for cycling clubs from 1930 until it closed in 1966.

The 62-page book, "North Mymms Pictures From the Past", contains almost 120 previously unpublished images.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.
