The South East England region
Elstree is a village in the Hertsmere borough of Hertfordshire, England, on the former A5 road, which followed the course of Watling Street, about 13 miles north of London. In 2011, its population was 5,110. It forms part of the civil parish of Elstree and Borehamwood, originally known simply as Elstree.
The village often lends its shorter name to businesses and amenities in the adjacent town of Borehamwood, and the names of Elstree and Borehamwood are used interchangeably. Elstree is perhaps best known for the Elstree Film Studios, where a number of famous British films were made, and the BBC's Elstree Studios, where the TV soap opera EastEnders is made; these are both located in Borehamwood. The Big Brother house is also located in Elstree.
Elstree & Borehamwood railway station[edit source
27 March 1954 Northbound steam train passing through Elstree & Borehamwood railway station.
Elstree & Borehamwood railway station is on the Thameslink Line between London St Pancras and Bedford. It was built by the Midland Railway in 1868, and is located just north of the 1,072 yard long Elstree Tunnels.
The area of Borehamwood to the west of the railway line, formally Deacon's Hill, is colloquially called Elstree even though it is not contiguous with the village. Elstree South tube station was due to be an extension of the Northern Line, planned in the 1930s, but never completed.
The old A5 road (Watling Street) goes through Elstree village, where it is designated as the A5183 road. Through the village, the road is called (from south to north) Elstree Hill South, High Street and Elstree Hill North. The 18th century Grade II listed building, Elstree Hill House, is still on Elstree Hill South, and used to be the home of the old Elstree School. In the early 1900s, it was noted that:
".. the hill roads are remarkably direct and seldom curve to avoid the steep pitch, and it has been suggested that the roads were originally slides for the timber which used to be sent to London for fuel."
Elstree Aerodrome[edit source
Elstree Aerodrome has a paved 717 yards long runway, suitable for light aircraft use. In the early 1930s it was a grass landing strip for the local Aldenham House country club.A concrete runway was put down during World War II, and Wellington Bombers were modified here. On Saturday 31 November 1975, retired F1 driver and Embassy Hill car owner Graham Hill and his racing driver Tony Brise were piloting Piper PA-23-350 Aztec N6645Y from France to London, United Kingdom. Hill and Brise were killed when Hill's light aircraft crashed on Arkley Golf Course, 3 miles short of the airport.
London Transport works
London Transport's Aldenham Works was sited on the edge of Elstree close to the A41; it was opened in 1956, closed in 1986, and demolished in 1996. It is now a large business park.
Originally a 19th century steam ship owned by the Houlder Brothers, the town also lends its name to a series of ships called the Elstree Grange (rebuilt 1916, 1944, 1979), at one time sunk during the Second World War.
3 minutes walk to centennial Park and the Village Hotel, Spa and gym. Restaurants and pub in the Village complex.
Easy commute into the Wet End and central London.
