Welcome to the North Mymms History project. This site is the joint effort of four local residents who are attempting to curate historical information about the parish of North Mymms in south Hertfordshire, and make it available on all digital platforms.

How to use this site


On the right, website (not mobile) users will see a list of titles. These will be either books - some out of print and no longer available - or features, written by local residents over the years, historical documents about North Mymms, or memories of local residents.

Further below, you will find a list of the authors of those works. Click on any name to reveal all their books/features on the site.

For smartphone users, the easiest way to see the list of all the books, features, and documents on the site is to scroll down this page until you reach the bottom. At that point you will see a 'View web version' link. Click it and you will see all the items in the right hand column. Pick the item you want and you will be taken to it on the mobile version (see image below).
