Why this site was created

The books and features contained on this site were produced by individuals and community groups in the parish of North Mymms in south Hertfordshire over many years.

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. All that content has now being transferred to this site, with better quality images and presented in a responsive template better suited to mobile devices.

Images on this site

A large number of the photographs on the site are from the Images of North Mymms collection, which contains 4,000 images on four CDs. The collection is available to buy.

The North Mymms History Project team

There is a small team of friends collaborating on this project.

  • Mike Allen, from Welham Green, is a photographer and curator of 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. He and Mike work closely on the Images Of North Mymms project. Peter is also a keen curator of local information, contained in The Peter Miller Collection.
  • Bernard Spatz, from Brookmans Park, helps check the authenticity of the material uploaded. Bernard has a keen eye for detail and is always on hand to check the content for errors.
  • David Brewer, from Brookmans Park, (that's me), set up and runs the site, which includes uploading new content and making sure that what we have is updated when it needs to be.

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 in the online and mobile space.
