Four Booklets about Rickmansworth and district

I have added details of the following booklets:
Street Names of Rickmansworth (pub circa 1983) This covers Rickmansworth Town, Eastbury, Heronsgate, Moor Park, Maple Cross, West Hyde - and sticks firmly to its title - for instance it doesn't provide any information on other place names - such as Herongate.
Industrial Archaeology of Rickmansworth by E. V. Parrot (1980) is a slim booklet which mentions Loudwater Mill and Lane, Sokesbridge Mill, Mill End Mill, Batchworth Mill, Scotsbridge Mill, Church Street and Batchworth Bridges, Croxley Mill, Troy Mill, Croxley Green Windmill, Bypass and Wrights Garage, The Canal, Rickmansworth Gasworks, Railway, and Croxley House Well Head. 
Rickmansworth Park, Hertfordshire, by Adrienne Jaques (2003) is a very useful text about a large house, with pictures, maps and an index. This is still in print and available from the Rickmansworth Historical Society
'Ricky' - The Story of a Sailing Club by Tom Vaughan (1980) was published to mark the club's 50th anniversary and is an essential reference work for anyone researching this club.
In each case I have only provided basic information on the booklet - but if you are interested in knowing more please Ask Chris a relevant question which the book may be able to answer - and I will then write a review which relates to your interest. This approach allows me to list as many books as possible while only writing detailed reviews of books which people are interested in.
