Borehamwood Woolworths – Store 799

116-118 Shenley Road, Borehamwood, Hertfordshire WD6 1EF

Woolworths in Borehamwood was opened in 1953 on the corner of Cardinal Avenue and Shenley Road, before moving across the road. Thanks to the Elstree & Boreham Wood Museum we know the store was previously occupied by BBE Evans. The below photo from 1958 shows after the first Woolworths moved out – you can just make out the shadow of the name.
