North Mimms
« on: May 03, 2009, 08:50:45 pm »
We were looking at the Home Counties  section of  Bartholomew's Sixth-Inch Motoring Map of Great Britain which my husband bought in the late fifties when he was cycling round Hertfordshire.  I was surprised to see that the spelling was still North Mimms and wondered how it became North Mymms.
