The London Borough of Hillingdon have issued a leaflet which highlights four key sites within the borough with connections to the Polish Air Force personnel who were stationed at RAF Northolt  between 1940 and 1945. These are

  • The Battle of Britain Bunker, in St Andrew’s Park, Uxbridge
  • The Polish Air Force Memorial (Polish War Memorial), in South Ruislip
  • Orchard Inn, Ruislip
  • Northwood Cemetery

I have devised and written up a walking route which links these sites, starting at Uxbridge station and ending at Northwood Hills station (with an alternative ending at Northwood station, which has a direct bus link with Uxbridge, thus closing the circle).
