It can be difficult to talk about a town that is part of Greater London because many of the locations that have been enveloped by the massive metropolis often lack much of a singular identity. This isn't the fault of the individual town, though, considering the fact that London is the kind of behemoth that simply can't help but whitewash its grand influence over the sometimes quaint history and mindset of the towns that were only guilty of being too close to an ever-growing cultural epicenter. In many cases, there is simply not enough "personality" left in many of the towns that are part of London these days and thus it is wholly refreshing to see a town like Ruislip maintain so much of what made it a unique and treasured town for so many centuries.

In the 1000s the nation of England was finally coming together into an incredibly powerful force thanks to the brilliance and bravery of the heroic William the Conqueror. Few leaders before or since had done so much to unite a land that was so wrought with turmoil and infighting. While the days of bloodshed were far from over for England in that time (and by the accounts of many had only just begun), it was William the Conqueror who ordered a massive and widespread census and survey that would allow many loose groups of people to become towns in the country of Britain. The Domesday Book was the tome that was compiled as a list of the towns and their importance to the nation. As such, any town that wasn't listed in the Domesday Book is often looked down on slightly as being not fully British through and through. In the 1086 Domesday Book edition, often thought of as the definitive edition, Ruislip is mentioned as a parish. This makes it decidedly "Olde English" and its name was even written down is Rislepe. Experts have analyzed the old name and the tongue in which it was spoken and determined that the name translated into "leaping place on the river where rushes go". How this was figured out is beyond your narrator but clearly people packed in a lot of information in very few letters in those days. At any rate, the river that was mentioned was the famed River Pinn and to this day the Pinn still rushed by the beautiful town.

These days Ruislip still proudly maintains the gorgeous architecture and historical relics that have made up its long and storied past. Famous buildings like the Swan and the Duck House are Grade II listed buildings and therefore they will never be razed to the ground and will instead stand admirably as a testament to the vast and fascinating history of Ruislip. The Great Barn and the Little Barn are equally beautiful edifices and it seems that nearly everywhere you look you get a taste of the true Ruislip. This is in marked contrast to many of the other towns that are now a part of Greater London. Put simply, it is downright refreshing that some cities still have pride in their past and what they've accomplished and will never give it up no matter how enormous the competition might seem.
