About Elstree:

Elstree is a village in the Hertsmere borough of Hertfordshire, England. This village is located about 15 miles northwest of central London on the former A5 road that follows the course of Watling Street. 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 multiple Elstree Film Studio complexes, where many films were made, including BBC Elstree Centre, where the TV soap opera EastEnders is shot. This production center is actually in Borehamwood. The local newspaper is the Borehamwood and Elstree Times. Together with Borehamwood, the village is twinned with Offenburg in Germany, Fontenay-aux-Roses in France, and Huainan in China. The name ‘Elstree’ derives from the Anglo-Saxon phrase ‘Tidwulf’s Tree’, which is mentioned as ‘Tidulfres treow’ in an 11-12th century manuscript of an A.D. 786 charter. It is thought that “the ‘T’ being lost in the wrong division of ‘aet Tidwulfes treo’”. In 1723, topographer John Norden noted in his book Speculum Britanniae, that in the country of Hertfordshire was one ‘Elstre or Eglestre’. In the 5th century, British warlord Vortigern and his two sons, Vortimer and Catigern, took part in the Battle of Elstree, then called the Battle of Allestree, where the Saxon Horsa was killed. There may be confusion with the Battle of Aylesbury. The Manor of Elstree was formerly included in the Manor of Parkbury and belonged to the Abbey of St. Albans. On the Dissolution of the Monasteries, it was granted by Henry VIII, to Anthony Denny. In 1607, Anthony Denny’s grandson Edward Denny sold part of the estate, with all manorial rights, to Robert Briscoe, who sold it the same year to Sir Baptist Hicks. Part of the estate became the Manor of Boreham and was sold to Edward Beauchamp. It remained with the Beauchamp-Proctor family until 1751, alienating it to a Mr. Gulston of William. Gulston then sold it to a Mr. Pigfatt, a gunsmith, who within a few years, conveyed it to Thomas Jemmett. In 1774 it was purchased from Mr. Jemmet by the late George Byng, M.P. for Middlesex, who passed it on to his son, by which time the estate was called the Manor of Boreham. 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 Underground station was due to be an extension of the Northern line, planned in the 1930s, but never completed.
