Post by Georgina Dorsett ( nee Peters ): Thrift Farm

My parents moved to 1 Thrift Farm lane Borehamwood in 1947 from London, the farm was next to their house, it was a dirt track leading to the house. In front of our house was a cornfield we often had pigs come in our front garden and i would walk to the farm to see the animals particularly the sheep. They built a tarmac road when Holmshill school was built, and we no longer had a wonderful view of lovely cornfields was such a shame.

Post by Scott Hatton: 12 Wansford Park, WD6

We moved to 12 Wansford Park during August 1960, moving out during 1967.

My parents had managed to wangle themselves into a house in London W10 which was due to be demolished by the local council. Thus the council moved them into a much better place (inside toilet!) opposite Tempsford Green in Borehamwood.

My mother worked at Keystones in the 1940 before she was married.

She later worked at home which a lot of people did. You would often see people walking around Boreham Wood with boxes filled with piecework for the factory.

Shenley Road, WD6

Shenley Road is the main street running through Borehamwood.

Leading to the village of Shenley, and hence the name, it was not always the high street of Boreham Wood (later Borehamwood). The main commercial activity until the 1930s was centred on Theobald Street instead.

As the village grew into a town, and especially as the new estate came into being, the largely residential nature of Shenley Road began to change as houses were knocked down and shops erected. This coincided with the centre of gravity of Borehamwood moving east as film studios were built.

When Elstree Way was laid out around the time of the Second World War, its junction with Shenley Road began to mark the limit of the commercial west end of the road and the still residential east/north end.
