Murders, U-boat engines, and the church on the loo
« on: October 22, 2017, 09:27:30 am »
Murders, U-boats, and the church on the loo are just some of the local memories shared recently by Dr J. Plowman, who lived in Brookmans Park immediately after WW2. He contacted the North Mymms Parish Council with his recollections of his time here and would like anyone who wants to contact him to get in touch. His address is at the end of his shared memories 60 Years Living In Brookmans Park.

Interesting read.
I saw that the author mentioned the pony 'Merrilegs' which we had a thread on some time ago:
Merrilegs the pony

The sewage works that is referred to in the article is the land behind the recycling bank up the drive to the Community Centre, adjacent to St Thomas More Church. The old settlement tanks were filled in before the Centre was built and the land was treated as contaminated for years and kept fenced off. Earlier this year Thames Water, (who still own that plot of land, now all overgrown) confirmed that the land is now safe and the fences were removed. Some landscaping is promised by Thames and the area will be accessible, but will hopefully be properly maintained and serve as a haven for wildlife. The latest news I have is that Thames anticipate work to commence in November.
