Hemel Hempstead on Film
This unique collection of old film of Hemel Hempstead and the surrounding area provides a fascinating look back at Hemel from the 1930s to the 1960s. It takes us back to the days when Old Town was at the very heart of local life and records the dramatic changes as the New Town took shape. It also captures many everyday scenes and some memorable events in the town's past including, the Bourne End rail crash; the last train on the Nicky Line; charter celebrations in 1948; the heyday of Apsley Mills.

The archives of the Gazette provide a commentary on the events as they unfolded and a unique insight into this remarkable period in the town's history.
