Ruislip Manor


Ruislip Manor - see Ruislip. Today near the River Pinn lies Manor farm. This, and its surroundings, once held a priory dependent on the Norman Abbey of Bee. During the wars with France the Manor was confiscated by the Crown and the priory was closed in 1414. The land was granted to the Earl of Bedford, then to King's College, Cambridge, who still own the lordship of the manor.

The station opened as RUISLIP MANOR HALT on 5 August 1912.
