We live in Ruislip, a suburb in North West London.
Ruislip is an old parish, documented in the Domesday Book of 1086. Within the nearby Manor Farm complex are the remains of a Norman motte & bailey castle, a superb 13th century "Great Barn" with the adjacent "Little Barn" now used as a library and a 16th century Manor House. Hillingdon Council have a brief description of the Manor Farm. Opposite is the 13th century St Martin's Church.
