One of the earliest references to Bosci de Boreham (Boreham Wood) is in 1188:
“Pope Clement granted the monastery’s kitchen the entire land of Elstree in 1188. He also donated the Boreham wood to the Abbey for swine feeding.”
The House of Lords granted the following in 1776:
“An Act to divide and close the Common or Waste Ground known as Boreham Wood Common in the Parish of Elstree otherwise Idletree in the County of Hertford.”
Borehamwood used to be part of the parish of Elstree. On February 26, 1909, the ecclesiastical parish of “All Saints, Boreham Wood” was established, encompassing the portion of Elstree parish east of the Midland Railway. Despite the change in ecclesiastical boundaries, Borehamwood was still included in the civil parish of Elstree. On February 24, 1982, the civil parish was renamed Elstree and Borehamwood. Borehamwood and Elstree ecclesiastical parishes were reunited on 1 April 2005, also under the name “Elstree and Borehamwood.”
Because of the presence of production studios, the town became known as one of the main centres of the UK film, and later television, industries from the 1920s onwards.
Following World War II, the town’s population grew dramatically, with large areas of council housing built for displaced Londoners, many of which are now privately owned. Because of its proximity to central London, the town has primarily become a residential suburb. The Admiralty began building highly secret high-performance electronic digital computers in a redundant wartime factory at Borehamwood in 1946, initially for real-time gunnery control, and later for surface-to-air guided weapons and missiles, as well as specialist cryptography and code-breaking computers for GCHQ.
Borehamwood is currently undergoing a significant housing transformation, with hundreds of new homes constructed over the last five years. Two more developments are under construction, and more are on the way.
Aside from the studios, the town is home to numerous retail stores, hotels, restaurants, offices, and light industry. Due to their proximity to London and significantly lower accommodation rates, the hotels primarily cater to tourists visiting the Elstree Studios, attendees of television shows being recorded in the Elstree Studios, and London visitors.
The Borehamwood & Elstree Times is the only weekly newspaper in the area.
Borehamwood has an oceanic climate (Köppen climate classification Cfb), as does almost the entire rest of the United Kingdom.
