Review of Waddesdon: A village and parish placed 10 kilometres west of the large town of Aylesbury, Waddesdon is a traditional farming area with a parish church originating from the 13th century. The well known Waddesdon Manor is found just outside the village, built in 16th century French Renaissance style by the successful Rothschild family at the end of 19th century.

Still dominated by structures established by the Rothschilds (the village hall, the Five Arrows hotel & dwellings built for manor employees), present day Waddesdon houses a populace of roughly 2,000 (census of 2011). Until the 1930's linked to neighbouring Aylesbury by means of train, Waddesdon train station is long decommissioned and the village can now only be got to by road (the A41). The parish (including Westcott, Eythrope, Woodham & Wormstone) takes in approximately 7,000 acres.

Waddesdon Manor HouseWaddesdon Over the Centuries: Without doubt a Saxon village just before the Norman conquest, the manor of Waddesdon was held by one of Queen Edith's men, Brictric, in those long gone, largely unrecorded days. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the manor was described as being retained by Miles Crispin and having a worth of 27 hides. Waddesdon manor was overseen by countless individuals prior to eventually ending up with John Spencer Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough in the 19th century, including Henry of Oxford and Thomas Earl of Devon. In the 1870's the 7th Duke of Marlborough (John Spencer Churchill) sold his entire Bucks estate, which included Waddesdon and surrounding areas, to Ferdinand de Rothschild, a politician (he was High Sheriff of Bucks & Liberal MP representing Aylesbury), art enthusiast and the prosperous Rothschild banking dynasty of Austria.

Waddesdon Manor House: The striking Waddesdon Manor House, in the Rebirth (Renaissance) style of a sixteenth century French chateau, right down to the wine cellars, was put up by Ferdinand de Rothschild, using a design by Gabrielle-Hippolyte Destailleur. The manor and estate passed down to Alice Charlotte de Rothschild, the Baron's sister, when he passed away in 1898. In the late 1950's, following the passing of James de Rothschild, Waddesdon Manor was given to the National Trust, it then developed into a favourite tourism destination. Modern day Waddesdon Manor features substantial landscaped gardens, its phenomenal collection of paintings, furniture and ornamental arts, a plant centre, a Rococo style aviary, a wine cellar, gift shops, meeting rooms, a marriage venue (The Dairy at Waddesdon), a children's area, gift shops and high class restaurants. Carol singing, art shows, food markets, wine tastings, and horticultural shows are amongst the plenty of events and functions which happen to be held all year round at waddesdon manor and grounds.

Pillow lace manufacture was in addition done by a number of the ladies of the parish in the mid to late 19th century.
