West Ruislip

West Ruislip - see Ruislip.

The adjacent main line station was opened by the Great Western & Great Central Joint Committee on 2 April 1906 as RUISLIP & ICKENHAM. It was re-named WEST RUISLIP on 30 June 1947. In preparation for the opening of the Underground station, the committee of the New Works Programme 1935/40 suggested naming it ICKENHAM GREEN. However, delayed by the Second World War, the Underground station was opened as WEST RUISLIP on 21 November 1948.
