Stapleton Road was built in the third wave of Borehamwood development.


The area between Green Street/Cowley Hill is hillier than most parts of Borehamwood. While this area was planned alongside the rest of the estate, Stapleton Road and its surrounding streets remained farmland until later.

Campions School was situated at the Aycliffe Road junction and the road follows the contour of a hill which is why it bends as it does towards Green Street.

The Green Street end was a little more commercial in the earlier days - it was a small village in its own right - until the new roads were built. Once Green Street was attached to Borehamwood by development, its lost its shops and pubs.

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.
