North Mimms

"NORTH MIMMS is a village in the hundred of Dacorum, Hertford, two miles from South Mimms. Near the 'Maypole' inn, in this village, at a place called Water-end, is one of those natural curiosities presented by waters collected among the hills disappearing (in 'swallow-holes', as they are termed,) with a great noise; the direction of these waters is unknown, but it is conjectured that they feed the New river stream at Amwell. The church, dedicated to St. Mary, contains some monuments and brasses with inscriptions worth perusal; amongst these is one to lord chancellor Somers, who died in 1716. The living is a discharged vicarage, in the presentation of Mr. Gaussen. In a delightful situation here is North Mimms Place, the beautiful and much admired seat of Alderman, Sir William Heygate, Bart. Population of the parish, in 1831, 1068." [From Royal National and Commercial Directory and Topography of Herts, Pigot & Co., London, 1839]
