Why this site was created
Valuable information about the parish, which has a history dating back to the Domesday Book, has been curated by the community in an attempt to prevent it being lost and forgotten.
20 years ago, I was given permission to reproduce the material online for the benefit of all. That content was scanned, formatted and uploaded by me to the history section of The Brookmans Park Newsletter website, to ensure that it reached a wider audience and was searchable. It is now being transferred to this site with better quality images and presented in a responsive template better suited to mobile devices.
Copyright and privacy
- Mike Allen, from Welham Green, is a photographer and curator of old images of North Mymms. Mike has preserved and digitised many pictures that might have otherwise been lost.
- Peter Miller, from Water End, is a local historian and keen archivist of documents, images, and anything to do with the history of North Mymms and the surrounding area.
- Bernard Spatz, from Brookmans Park, helps check the authenticity of the material uploaded.
- David Brewer, from Brookmans Park, runs the site and manages the uploading of new content.
Our aim is to ensure that what we preserve is factual, fair, respects copyright and ownership, and is of benefit to the community. Since the folding of the North Mymms Local History Society there has been a lack of an organisation to take on the work of preserving North Mymms history; our aim is to try to fill the void.
