Review of Waddesdon: A parish and village located 9.5 kilometers west of the town of Aylesbury, Waddesdon is an age old farming community which has a parish church first constructed in the 13th century. Well known as the setting for the amazing Waddesdon Manor, conceived by the well-heeled Rothschilds family in the Renaissance style of a sixteenth century French chateau (now administered by the National Trust), Waddesdon has been largely an estate village since the late nineteenth century.

A number of the buildings established by the Rothschilds (houses built for manor personnel, the Five Arrows hotel and the village hall) still dominate present day Waddesdon and so are lived in & valued by its populace of approximately 2,097 (in 2011). In former times connected to near by Aylesbury by rail, Waddesdon train station has long been shut down and the village can only be accessed by road (A41). The parish of Waddesdon (coupled with Westcott, Woodham, Eythrope and Wormstone) covers just over 7,000 acres.

Waddesdon Manor HouseA Brief History of Waddesdon: Definitely a Saxon village before the Norman conquest, the manor of Waddesdon was controlled by Brictric, one of Queen Edith's men, in those very early, mostly undocumented times. In the 1086 Domesday Book the manor was listed as retained by Miles Crispin and being worth 27 hides. Subsequently Waddesdon manor was awarded to Henry of Oxford and later to the Courtenay family, it switched hands over and over again until eventually passing to John 7th Duke of Marlborough. In eighteen seventy four the 7th Duke of Marlborough sold his entire Buckinghamshire landed estate, that included Waddesdon & surrounding areas, to Ferdinand de Rothschild, a politician (he was High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire & Liberal MP for Aylesbury), art collector and part of the affluent Rothschild banking dynasty.

Waddesdon Manor House: The Renaissance (Rebirth) style Waddesdon Manor House was consequently founded by Ferdinand de Rothschild, replicating a 16th century French chateau, wine cellars and all. The estate and manor was inherited by The Baron's sister, Alice Charlotte de Rothschild, in 1898, when Ferdinand died at Waddesdon Manor in 1898, on his 59th birthday. Besides displaying the Baron's vast collection of art, furniture and tapestries, the Manor House also served as a residence. In the late 1950's, James de Rothschild died and Waddesdon Manor developed into a famous tourism hotspot soon after it was bequeathed to the National Trust. Today's Waddesdon Manor delivers considerable gardens, a world-famous collection of paintings, furniture and decorative arts, a plant centre, a Rococo aviary, a wine cellar, gift shops, conference areas, a marriage venue (The Dairy at Waddesdon), a childrens corner, first class restaurants and gift shops. Loads of activities and events take place at Waddesdon Manor throughout the year like art displays, food markets, carol singing, horticultural shows and wine tasting events.

Over the centuries, Waddesdon has been a mostly farming village and together with the modern day name has been called diversely as Votesdone (11th century) and Woddesdon (fourteenth century). During the 18th century the village for a while explored the possibility of silk manufacturing, when a small factory becoming founded in 1843 used as an addition to a larger factory in neighbouring Aylesbury. Pillow lace manufacturing was also done by a lot of the ladies of the parish during the mid to late 19th century. The structure of the parish church Saint Michael and All Angels began in 1190, it was expanded & upgraded frequently across the years, particularly in the medieval and Victorian periods. The Font dates from about 1400, the tower was reconstructed in 1892, taking the place of the one constructed in the fourteenth century.
