Its name is created from the Old English ryse, “rush” and hlype, “leap”, which is thought to refer to a spot where the little River Pinn could once be crossed. Other scholars argue the second syllable is derived from “slaep” meaning “a slippery spot”. Thus Ruislip means “the wet place where rushes grow”. It has had various spellings until recorded as Ruislip in 1527.
To the north of Ruislip High Street stand the Grade II listed Manor Farm House, a 13th-century Grade II Great Barn and the 16th-century Little Barn, which houses Ruislip library. The 20-acre (8-hectare) site includes the remains of an 11th-century fortification that is a scheduled ancient monument. A working farm until the 1930s, the farm was let by King’s College, Cambridge, the owners of the land from 1500 to the mid 20th century. It is now under a large redevelopment project.
Nearby attractions include Ruislip Lido, a converted reservoir with an artificial sand beach, surrounded by woodlands through which runs the Ruislip Lido Railway, a miniature 12″-gauge railway with diesel and steam locomotives. Ruislip Lido was established as a reservoir to feed the Grand Union Canal by damming and flooding the lower part of the valley between Park Wood and Copse Wood, including the hamlet of Park Hearn. Work began in 1811; the reservoir began feeding the Canal in 1816.
Nearby is RAF Northolt, with the Northolt Aerodrome, where a Polish War Memorial commemorates the numerous Polish airmen, along with airmen of other nations, stationed in the area during World War II.
