Review of Waddesdon: Positioned around nine and a half kilometres west of the town of Aylesbury, the small village and parish of Waddesdon is an age old farming community with a thirteenth century parish church. Waddesdon is actually best known as the location of the Rothschild dynasty owned, French Renaissance style, Waddesdon Manor (nowadays looked after by the National Trust), drawing lots of tourists to the area.

Waddesdon today has a population of about 2,097 (2011 census) and continues to be dominated by buildings established for the Rothschild family (the Village Hall, the Five Arrows Hotel & properties built for Manor workers). Until the 1930's linked to neighbouring Aylesbury via train, Waddesdon railway station has long since shut down and the village can only be reached by road (namely the A41). The parish (in conjunction with Wormstone, Westcott, Woodham and Eythrope) covers just over seven thousand acres.

The manor of Waddesdon eventually transferred to John Spencer Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough in the 19th century, having swapped hands several times over the past years. Politician, art enthusiast and a prosperous Austrian banking family, Ferdinand de Rothschild, acquired the large Buckinghamshire landed estate of the Duke of Marlborough in the late 19th century, which included Waddesdon & surrounding areas.
