Few little facts about Ruislip
Ruislip is situated in the London Borough of Hallingdon. Its name is created from the Old English ryse, "rush" and hlype, "leap", which is thought to refer to a spot where the 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".
The town featured in Leslie Thomas's 1974 novel of suburbia, Tropic of Ruislip. The book was actually based on nearby Carpenders Park.
Much of The Inbetweeners is filmed around Ruislip, and the school used for the series is Ruislip High. The Two Ronnies made a sketch about the royal hertiage of Ruislip, called "Home Rule for Ruislip".
