"Around Ruislip People and Places" illuminates many fascinating aspects of Ruislip, Northwood, Eastcote, Harefield and Ickenham in years gone by. The anecdotes range from medieval times when Ruislip boasted a small castle and numerous mysterious moats were scattered along the valleys of the River Pinn and Yeading Brook, to a First World War munitions factory, a Cold War American airbase, and pioneering medical research at Mount Vernon, Northwood, in the twentieth century. Characters from the area's history, both well known and long forgotten are brought back to life, while the stories behind individual streets and buildings are also explored. Eileen Bowlt's new book will be essential reading from anyone interested in the history of this part of Middlesex.
