Review of Waddesdon: An old farming community which has a thirteenth century parish church, Waddesdon is located about ten km west of the town of Aylesbury in The Vale of Aylesbury. Renowned as the location of the stunning Waddesdon Manor, founded by the rich Rothschilds dynasty in the Renaissance style of a sixteenth century French chateau (currently administered by the National Trust), Waddesdon has been basically an estate village since the end of the 19th century.

With a current population of around 2,000 (2011 census), the village today is still peppered with buildings constructed for the Rothschild family (the village hall, the Five Arrows hotel & properties built for manor staff). The parish of Waddesdon (together with Eythrope, Westcott, Wormstone and Woodham) covers close to seven thousand acres. Until the 1930's linked to neighbouring Aylesbury by means of rail, Waddesdon railway station has long since decommissioned and the village can just be reached by road (the A41).

Waddesdon's Manor HouseA Short History of Waddesdon: In the 1086 Domesday Book Waddesdon manor was having a value of twenty seven hides and described as controlled by Miles Crispin, although before this it was most definitely a Saxon village & was held by one of Queen Edith's men, Brictric. The manor of Waddesdon was controlled by various landowners before eventually ending up with John, 7th Duke of Marlborough in the 19th century, including Henry of Oxford, the Courtenay family and Thomas Earl of Devon. Politician, art enthusiast and member of a wealthy Austrian banking dynasty, Ferdinand de Rothschild, bought the large Buckinghamshire landed estate of the 7th Duke of Marlborough (John Spencer Churchill) in the 1870's, that included Waddesdon & surrounding areas.

Waddesdon Manor: The Renaissance style Waddesdon Manor House was later founded by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, reproducing a 16th century French chateau, right down to the wine cellars. The manor and estate was inherited by The Baron's sister, Alice Charlotte de Rothschild, in 1898, after Ferdinand passed away at Waddesdon Manor on his 59th birthday in 1898. Aside from housing the Baron's extensive collection of tapestries, furniture and art, Waddesdon Manor also acted as a family home. A brand new tourist attraction came to be when the National Trust took control of the managing of Waddesdon Manor House following the passing of James de Rothschild. Modern day Waddesdon Manor offers substantial landscaped gardens, a world-famous collection of furniture, paintings and ornamental arts, a garden centre, a Rococo aviary, a wine cellar, gift shops, meeting areas, a wedding venue (The Dairy at Waddesdon), a children's corner, first class restaurants and gift shops. Food markets, art displays, carol singing, wine tasting events, and horticultural events are included in the multiple functions which are held throughout the year at the manor.

Besides the current day name the community of Waddesdon has also been referred to as Votesdone (11th century) and Woddesdon (fourteenth century), across the centuries it has largely counted on farming. During the eighteenth century local people briefly tried out silk manufacture, with a modest factory becoming established in 1843 as an addition to a bigger factory in nearby Aylesbury. Pillow lace manufacturing was in addition carried out by many of the female citizens of the parish in the mid to late nineteenth century. The erection of Waddesdon's parish church Saint Michael & All Angels began in 1190, it was expanded and embellished several times across the centuries, in particular in the medieval & Victorian periods. The Font was built in around 1400, the tower was reconstructed in 1892, taking the place of the one built in the 14th century.
