Block Management Borehamwood
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Borehamwood.
History of Borehamwood
Borehamwood is situated in the Borough of Hertsmere, in Hertfordshire. It is approximately 12 miles north-west of central London. The first mention of Borehamwood is from the 1549 will of Humfrey Roberts, which describes his "dwellinge in Borramwode". However, in 1551 the will of John Meryden refers to his place of abode, "Boram Woode". Interestingly, the spelling has always been open to different interpretations. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, local directories refer to Boreham Wood.
In the 1920s, Borehamwood became renowned as a main centre of the UK film and later television industries: the Elstree Film Studios became a major success.
Since 1868, the Elstree and Borehamwood station has been serving the area, with links to St Pancras station, London.
After World War II, the town's population rapidly increased, and large areas of council housing were established, for displaced Londoners. During the 1940s and 1950s, Borehamwood's growth was rapid: Elstree Rural District Council built 1,500 homes between 1945 and 1956. The London County Council had 2,700 homes, and 550 private dwellings were constructed.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Borehamwood
I had a good visit to the Elstree & Borehamwood Museum. They currently have an exhibition, Off The Rails - The Line That Never Was. This runs until Saturday 22nd October. There are moving models; and I was fascinated with the model of the Tube line, that was nearly built from Edgware to Bushey Heath. It gives a different perspective, as it conveys the unexpected, to the visitor.
