Chandos Road was constructed upon a remaining field of Tilehouse Farm.

Chandos Road was built later than most roads of the northern Borehamwood estate.

Tilehouse Farm (situated on Theobald Street) had had most of its land turned over for development. By the turn of the 1970s, all of the land that had been contiguous with the farmhouse had been developed - Stratfield Road being the latest.

The farm had one remaining field - given over to pasture. It was bounded by the houses between 68-82 Theobald Street, Croxdale Road, Barton Way and Stratfield Road (and its cul-de-sacs, Lexington Close and Haddon Close).

In 1970, most of this final large field was slated for development and Chandos Road built upon it on a circular pattern. Interestingly, Lexington Close and Haddon Close became the access roads and they stopped being cul-de-sacs but kept their names.

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.
