This history of Ruislip, Northwood and Eastcote brings to life the rural past of what are now suburbs of London. Reminders of many historical periods abound. Earthworks surround a possible Saxon settlement. A moat and mound reveal a possible Norman castle. The church and the Great Barn were built when monks of the Abbey of Bec lived on what is now Manor Farm. More than forty of the cottages mentioned in 16th century documents can still be found among modern houses, Once again, as with many outlying areas, the railway from 1887 made the area accessible to visitors - Londoners in search of rural scenery - and then to ramblers, builders and settlers.
