Review of Waddesdon: A traditional agricultural community having a thirteenth century parish church, Waddesdon is based about 6 miles to the west of the town of Aylesbury in The county of Buckinghamshire. Famed as the location of the fabulous Waddesdon Manor, put up by the well-heeled Rothschilds family in the Renaissance style of a 16th century French chateau (at present administered by the National Trust), Waddesdon has been essentially an estate village since the late 19th century.

Still peppered with structures erected by the Rothschilds (the Five Arrows hotel, the village hall, and houses built for manor staff), modern day Waddesdon houses a populace of about 2,100 (census of 2011). Waddesdon formerly had a train station which linked it to nearby Aylesbury, this is long closed down & the village can now only be accessed by road (namely the A41). The parish of Waddesdon covers roughly 7,000 acres (along with Eythrope, Woodham, Wormstone and Westcott).

Waddesdon ManorThe Historical Past of Waddesdon: Right before the Conquest by the Normans, Waddesdon was clearly a Saxon settlement, the manor being held by Brictric, one of Queen Edith's men. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the manor was having a worth of 27 hides and documented as being controlled by Miles Crispin. Waddesdon manor finally passed on to John Spencer Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough in the 19th century, having swapped hands over and over again over the past centuries. It was the previously mentioned 7th Duke of Marlborough who, in eighteen seventy four, sold Waddesdon and his large Buckinghamshire estate to Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild an MP, art collector & part of the successful Rothschild banking dynasty.

Waddesdon Manor: Ferdinand de Rothschild went on to construct the impressive Waddesdon Manor House, from a layout by Gabrielle-Hippolyte Destailleur, in the style of a sixteenth century French chateau, wine cellars and all. Ferdinand passed away in 1898, his estate passing to his sister, Alice Charlotte de Rothschild. The Manor was constructed both as a residence as well as to hold the Baron's huge collection of tapestries, art and furniture. In the late 1950's, James de Rothschild passed away and Waddesdon Manor developed into a celebrated tourist hotspot when it was given to the National Trust. Waddesdon Manor is known for a world-renowned collection of works of art and furniture, massive landscaped gardens, an excellent wine cellar, a Rococo style aviary, plant centre, online shop, meeting rooms, kid's corner, high class eateries, giftshops and also features wedding facilities (The Dairy at Waddesdon Manor). Waddesdon Manor also organizes a good number of functions and events all year round such as art exhibitions, food markets, carol singing, wine samplings, and horticultural shows.

Waddesdon through the centuries has been a largely agricultural village, it has had the names Votesdone (11th C) and Woddesdon (14th C), and also the modern spelling of the name. During the 18th century the village briefly explored the possibility of silk manufacture, with a smallish factory becoming founded in 1843 as an addition to the bigger factory in neighbouring Aylesbury. Pillow lace making was in addition carried out by lots of the women of the parish through the middle to late 19th century. In approximately 1190 construction commenced on Waddesdon's parish church of Saint Michael and All Angels, the current church tower superseded a fourteenth century one in 1892, the font dates from 1400.
