Brook Road is one of the main arteries in the northern part of Borehamwood.

It was laid out in the early 1950s being named after Tykes Water which runs alongside the road. Aberford Park to the west of Brook Road now contains the culverted stream and a lake formed from it.

Until the turn of the 1970s, the southern end of Brook Road fizzled out with the parallel Eldon Avenue continuing as the main road south. The local council built a roundabout to improve the interchange between Shenley Road and Elstree Way and took the opportunity to extend Brook Road to the roundabout.

Borehamwood

Borehamwood is a town of approximately 30 000 residents in southern Hertfordshire, just outside London, and part of the London commuter belt.

Borehamwood, more commonly called Boreham Wood before the LCC estate was built, is part of the borough of Hertsmere. The town is often associated with the nearby village Elstree (being part of the ancient parish of Elstree), the two still share a local council, now called the Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council.

The A1 passes just to the east of the town, and the M25 passes about two miles north of it.

Since the 1920s, the town has been the location of several film studios. The former British National Studios on Clarendon Road are now the BBC’s Elstree Television Studios. One of BBC’s popular soaps, EastEnders, is produced at the BBC studios, as well as popular medical drama Holby City. ’Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’, ’Big Brother’ and major feature films are filmed at the Elstree Studios in Shenley Road.
