We’re “genteel” (it says here)

Trawling around looking for a definitive Green Belt map for Ickenham (here’s a clue), I noticed this description of Ickenham in Hidden London. We are, apparently, “A genteel residential suburb situated between Uxbridge and Ruislip.”

Hidden London claims to take, “an informative, histor­ically inclined look at a variety of the capital’s more obscure attractions, curiosities, districts and localities.”
