Local historian Mike Allen has put together an interesting piece on the prisoner of war camp built at Marshmoor, Welham Green in 1916. Apparently, the prisoners built it themselves using local timber. The feature has just been uploaded to our new history site, The North Mymms History Project. It includes rare images from Mike's collection Images of North Mymms. There were 216 held captive at the camp.

Good to know that the ATM is coming back - ironically to where the village's first ATM was when the dry cleaners was once Lloyds Bank

Environment / Are you missing a delivery of your latest Next catalogue?
« Last post by Susan on January 26, 2018, 03:03:20 pm »
Just spotted a host of catalogues dumped in the ditch in Bulls Lane.

I don't know if someone knows how to tweet Next and the council (if they are the appropriate people)? This should be an easy prosecution, ;) as the names of the intended recipients are clearly on the packaging, so Next could trace who was supposed to deliver the catalogues.

Environment / Our collection of 60 free local walks has moved
« Last post by Editor on January 26, 2018, 10:14:59 am »
Our collection of country walks has moved to a new responsive site which works much better on mobile devices such as smartphones.
The site is called Hertfordshire Walker, and it currently has 60 walks that are free to download. All have been updated with new images, clearer directions (we hope), new maps, and links to local pubs so you can check opening times. As before, there is a comment box at the bottom of each walk where you can share tips or point out any issues. You can also rate the walks and share them on social media if you want.

All the material is released under Creative Commons BY-NC-SA 4.0 which means that you are free to reproduce the walks under the same Creative Commons licence conditions for non-commercial purposes as long as you give attribution to the original source and link to the original material. More walks will be added during 2018. We hope you enjoy the new version of our walks.

Genealogy and Local History / The North Mymms History Project
« Last post by Editor on January 25, 2018, 09:40:03 pm »
A small team of local volunteers has been working behind the scenes over the past few weeks to build a new, online repository of historical reference material about the parish of North Mymms. It's called The North Mymms History Project and has three sections: books, features and documents.

The collection of material includes books and features that were previously stored in this site's history section. That material is gradually being moved across to the new site, with higher-resolution images being added from Mike Allen's superb collection of Images Of North Mymms. New material is also being added, with many more articles, documents and pamphlets waiting in line ready to be uploaded. Local historian and archivist, Peter Miller, has generously offered to share his extensive collection of material with this online project.

Those using the site will have the opportunity to add their comments at the end of every item. We are hoping this will lead to new information emerging and being shared. There is also a contact form so you can let us know if you spot any typos or mistakes.

Those who prefer to access information via smartphone and tablet will enjoy an enhanced experience because of the new site's responsive template which makes the material easier to read on smaller screens. We hope you enjoy The North Mymms History Project.
