Bushey is a town in the Hertsmere borough of Hertfordshire in the East of England. Bushey Heath is situated to the south east of Bushey on the boundary with the London Borough of Harrow. Despite being close to London and having Watford on its doorstep Bushey retains the feeling of a small town. The American University at Bushey was earlier that Masonic Senior Boys School. The school was converted for use as the campus for The United States International University in Europe. The old school housed a university library and student bedrooms for young people from all around the world to "live-in". Sadly neither the school nor the university survived. We can still see the old school in all its glory as the location for so many old films produced at the nearby Elstree Studios. Being located near several film studios at Elstree and Borehamwood, Bushey and Bushey Heath frequently feature as backdrops for many film and TV shows. Nowadays the site is empty and awaiting the decision of the council planners for a massive housing development.
