Review of Waddesdon: A village and parish situated 9.5 kilometers to the west of Aylesbury, Waddesdon is an ancient farming community having a parish church which dates from the 13th century. Widely known as the location of the lovely Waddesdon Manor, founded by the well-heeled Rothschilds family in the Renaissance style of a 16th century French chateau (presently taken care of by the National Trust), Waddesdon has primarily been an estate village since the late nineteenth century.

The village today has a populace of around 2,000 (in 2011) & is still dominated by structures established for the Rothschilds (properties built for Manor staff, the Five Arrows Hotel and the Village Hall). The parish (in conjunction with Eythrope, Woodham, Wormstone and Westcott) covers just over seven thousand acres. Until the 1930's connected with nearby Aylesbury by means of rail, Waddesdon train station has long been decommissioned and the village can now only be accessed by road (A41).

The Manor at WaddesdonWaddesdon Over the Centuries: Clearly a Saxon village prior to the Norman conquest, the manor of Waddesdon was possessed by Brictric, one of Queen Edith's men, in those very early, largely unrecorded times. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the manor was documented to be held by Miles Crispin and being worth twenty seven hides. Waddesdon manor finally passed to John Spencer Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough in the 19th century, having swapped hands many times over the years. Politician, art enthusiast & member of a affluent Austrian banking dynasty, Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, purchased the whole Bucks estate of the 7th Duke of Marlborough in the late 19th century, that included Waddesdon.

Waddesdon Manor: Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild subsequently went on to build the striking Waddesdon Manor House, on a design by Gabrielle-Hippolyte Destailleur, in the Renaissance style of a sixteenth century French chateau, wine cellars and all. Ferdinand died in 1898, the estate passing down to his sister, Alice Charlotte de Rothschild. In 1957, James de Rothschild passed away and the Manor came to be a prominent tourism attraction after it was handed to the National Trust. Waddesdon Manor has a world-famous collection of works of art and furniture, massive landscaped gardens, a fantastic wine cellar, a Rococo style aviary, plant centre, online shop, conference rooms, child's area, premium restaurants, gift shops and even offers marriage services (The Dairy at Waddesdon Manor). The Manor also hosts lots of functions throughout the year which include art shows, carol singing, food markets, horticultural shows and wine tastings.

Over the years, Waddesdon survived as a principally farming community and and also the existing title has been known diversely as Votesdone (eleventh century) and Woddesdon (14th C). In the eighteenth century it briefly delved into silk making, a smallish factory being started in 1843 as an offshoot of the larger factory in nearby Aylesbury. Pillow lace making was furthermore carried out by a lot of the women of the parish through the middle to late 1800's. In around 1190 construction commenced on Waddesdon's Saint Micheal and All Angels parish church, the current tower superseded a fourteenth century one in 1892, the font originates from 1400.
