And when Herts skipper Andy Lewis went for 14, caught at slip off Walker, the visitors were 45-2.
The third wicket soon followed on 62 as Walker removed the in-from Rhys Wynne for 31.
But by now the rain had started to increase and the conditions were more akin to water polo than league cricket.
The umpires finally called it a day with Mymms 84-3 from just shy of 25 overs.
Bar are eight points clear of Bishop's Stortford at the top with two home games and two away games left to play.
They next entertain relegation threatened Langleybury at The Walk on Saturday.
Mymms are still sixth and face Sawbridgeworth, the side just above them, this coming weekend.
