North Mymms Park
A short history

Index

On March 20th 1999, members of the North Mymms Local History Society were given the rare opportunity of a guided tour round North Mymms Park and House. As part of that tour each member was given a pack containing a booklet entitled 'A Short History of North Mymms Park' and a number of photographs of the house and gardens. During the tour the owners of the house, Glaxo, gave permission for the tour notes to be reproduced in full on this site.
