The video below was produced by the auctioneers Sworders for an auction at North Mymms Place in April 2018. The Sworders site promotes the event as one of the most important auction events of the spring of 2018.

"Situated in the Hertfordshire countryside, just four miles from Hatfield and six from St Albans, is one of Britain’s finest Jacobean homes - North Mymms Park (sic *). And on the 17th and 18th April 2018, Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers will sell its primary contents at the Stansted Mountfitchet Salerooms."
(Online editor's note: Throughout this material, the publicity put out by Sworders referred to the sale and the virtual tour as being of the Park, but it was, more accurately, the sale of the house and contents, known as North Mymms Place. We have corrected in our text, but are unable to correct in the video embedded below).

Sworders has a page on its site about the contents in the auction. Below is a 2'20" video created by Sworders. The company has given this site permission to embed the video on this site.
