Caishowe Road links Odyssey Road with Hartforde Road in Borehamwood

Caishowe Road seems to have been named after the Caishowe Hundred, an administrative division of Hertfordshire which included Elstree and Borehamwood. The hundred was known as Albanestou at the time of the Domesday Survey, and in the twelfth century was usually called the hundred of St. Albans. The name Cashio does not appear to have come into general use till after the sixteenth century.

Both Caishowe Road and Hartforde Road seem to have been faux-medieval names both gaining an extra E compared with their namesakes.

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.
