Situated on the northern edge of Hemel Hempstead towards Redbourn, Woodhall Farm was built in the mid to late 1970s on the former Brock's Fireworks site with a mix of private and housing association stock. The builder was Fairview Estates and it has property ranging from 4 bedroom detached houses down to one bedroom low -rise flats. The area has a shopping centre with a Sainsbury's Supermarket, Newsagents, Fish & Chip shop and Dry Cleaners and a Chemist shop. It also has two infant and middle schools and a doctors surgery serving the local area. At the 2011 census the area was included in the Apsley and Corner Hall Ward of Dacorum Council.
Woodhall Farm is home to approximately 5,661 people, and in keeping with the new towns' (see New towns in the United Kingdom) ethos, Woodhall was built with an emphasis to provide a neighbourhood shopping complex to serve the local community.
There are two primary schools servicing the area; Holtsmere End JMI and Brockswood Primary School.
Some of the residents of Woodhall Farm were affected by the Buncefield Oil Depot explosion in 2005, causing structural and superficial damage to many of the local houses and buildings.
