History society publishes new programme

Brookmans Park Transmitting Station
The history of the Brookmans Park Transmitting Station is one of the NMLHS talks
The history of the Brookmans Park Transmitting Station and the history of Queenswood School are just two of the subjects making up the new 2005-2006 programme for the North Mymms Local History Society (NMLHS).

Those interested in the history of the Transmitting Station, might also want to read another feature on this site entitled 'The London Twin-Wave Broadcasting Station Brookmans Park'

The society says all are welcome to attend its meetings and enquiries are welcome from anyone interested in local history and in particular that of North Mymms Parish and its locality.

According to the society, the role of the NMLHS is to stimulate interest by public talks, lectures, exhibitions and outings. Most of the Society's talks are illustrated with slides.

Meetings take place at the United Reformed Church in Brookmans Park on Tuesdays at 8pm. Visitors are welcome, tea and coffee is available at the meetings.
