Edulf Road leads to the north-eastern end of Meadow Park.


The road lies in an area of northern Borehamwood named after ancient English and sometimes Hertfordshire-related history. The area was built a few years in advance of the rest of the estate and as such were given different names.

Eadwulf or Eadulf (died 913) was a ruler in Northumbria in the early tenth century.

There was formerly both an Edulf Road North and Eldulf Road South. The northern branch was given a new name - Northfield Road - just before people moved into the new houses.

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.
