Borehamwood (occasionally referred to as Boreham Wood) is a town in southern Hertfordshire, situated 16 miles north of London. It is part of the borough of Hertsmere within the London commuter belt. As of April 2004, the town had approximately thirty thousand residents. There is only 1 weekly newspaper: the Borehamwood and Elstree Times, commonly known as the Borehamwood Times. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Borehamwood area.
The town was part of the ancient parish of Elstree; the two still share a local council, Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council. Borehamwood is undergoing a large transformation which has seen hundreds of new homes built over the last 5 years. There are currently two developments being built and more are expected.
On the west side of Borehamwood is a railway station, Elstree & Borehamwood railway station, served by trains operated by First Capital Connect, (formerly Thameslink). The same railway line is used by Midland Mainline between St Pancras station and Nottingham, although these trains do not stop. The A1 road passes just to the east of the town, and the M25 motorway passes about two miles north of it.
Since the 1920s, the town has been home to several film studios and many shots of its streets are included in 20th century British films. This earned it the nickname of the “British Hollywood”. Most of the studios have now closed, although two remain.
Many well-known movies such as Moby Dick, The Dam Busters, The Shining starring Jack Nicholson, the first three Indiana Jones films and the first three Star Wars movies were partially filmed at the former Associated British Studios in Shenley Rd. These were partly demolished in the 1980s to make way for a Tesco Extra supermarket on one side and an office block complex on the other. The area between the two has since been redeveloped to form Elstree Studios where, more recently, the TV series ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ and ‘Big Brother’ were made, as well as several major feature films. The Inspector Morse TV series’ production offices were based in the studios and, although the series was actually set in Oxford, several exterior locations (banks, shops etc) were filmed in the streets of Borehamwood.
