Thrift Farm Lane used to run to Thrift Farm.

Through the centuries, Thrift Farm Lane was no more than a country track linking Thrift Farm to the main road.

After the Second World War, the MGM studios were expanding and, needing a backlot, bought the farm and upgraded the access road. MGM ceased trading in 1970 and the land behind the studios, including the farm, was lent over to housing.

While keeping its name, the road is now a lot shorter than its former self. The Ark Theatre now lies at the end of it.

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.
