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

Chapter three deals with North Mymms Park and is part of the latest work produced by the North Mymms Local History Society including images dating back more than 130 years.

The collection of pictures includes the North Mymms Cricket team of 1905, the cricket club colts of 1926 and the bell ringers c 1914.

To view the pictures in the third 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The 62-page book, "North Mymms Pictures From the Past", is made up of 12 chapters and contains almost 120 previously unpublished images.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 sells for just 2 (plus 1.50 postage and packing within the UK). Copies can be ordered from committee member Len Palmer on 01707 655333 or John Baillie on 01707-271312.

According to the society, part of the cost of producing the 1,000 copies of "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 three 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 the first week of December.
