Two months after the first reprint and Peter Kingsford's books on the history of North Mymms have already sold out. The demand is so great that the North Mymms Local History Society is now about to order a second reprint.
The books which trace the history of North Mymms, from Domesday to the present, are reproduce in full on this site but the growing interest has persuaded the Society to fund another print run.
The first of the four, A Modern History of Brookmans Park 1700-1950 traces the modern day history of the village. The second, North Mymms People in Victorian Times, tells of the lives of the people of North Mymms Parish in the 19th century. The third book, North Mymms Schools and Their Children 1700-1964 looks at the beginning of formal education in the parish and the fourth Victorian Lives in North Mymms deals with the parish in the nineteenth century and throws a fresh light on how people lived, worked, and behaved.
The first print run included 200 copies of three of the books but only 30 copies of North Mymms Schools and Their Children 1700-1964 because the author felt it wouldn't sell...he was wrong.
Last year Peter Kingsford gave permission for the books to be published on the Brookmans Park Newsletter complete with the original photographs and drawings. Other complete history books on the site are listed in the History index.
You can secure a copy at £3 each by contacting the North Mymms Local History Society chairman, Terry Pennell on 01707 654311 or treasurer, John Harris on 01707 655355. Alternatively you can order a book by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
