Mimms Wash
Bridge over the Mymshall Brook – three arched bridge built in 1772. The Wash often flooded the adjacent land making the road impassable. It was built by James Hill, a stone mason of Barnet, and Francis Carrack, a bricklayer of Islington, for the Hertford, Middlesex and St Albans Turnpike Trust. The parapets have been rebuilt.
