Review of Waddesdon: An age old farming community with a thirteenth century church, Waddesdon is to be found around ten kilometres to the west of the town of Aylesbury in The county of Bucks. Waddesdon has primarily been an estate village since the late 19th century at the time the astonishing Renaissance style Waddesdon Manor was built by the successful Rothschilds dynasty, together with lodgings for the house staff.

A number of the buildings constructed for the Rothschilds (the village hall, the Five Arrows hotel & properties built for manor personnel) are very prominent in Waddesdon village today and so are inhabited by and cherished by its population of roughly 2,000 (in 2011). Waddesdon formerly had a train station which linked it with nearby Aylesbury, this is now closed & the village can only be accessed by road (namely the A41). Waddesdon parish accounts for close to seven thousand acres (together with Wormstone, Westcott, Woodham and Eythrope).

Waddesdon Manor and GardensWaddesdon's Past History: Undoubtedly a Saxon settlement before the Norman conquest, Waddesdon manor was controlled by Brictric, one of Queen Edith's men, in those long gone, mostly unrecorded days. In the 1086 Domesday Book the manor was described as being controlled by Miles Crispin and valued at 27 hides. The manor of Waddesdon was controlled by many people until eventually passing to John Spencer Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough in the 19th century, these included Thomas Earl of Devon and Henry of Oxford. Politician, art collector & member of a wealthy Austrian banking family, Ferdinand de Rothschild, obtained the complete Buckinghamshire landed estate of the Duke of Marlborough in 1874, that included Waddesdon.

Waddesdon Manor: The Renaissance style Waddesdon Manor House was thereafter erected by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, copying a 16th century French chateau, wine cellars and all. The manor and estate passed down to Ferdinand's sister, Alice Charlotte de Rothschild, in 1898, after Ferdinand died at the Manor on his 59th birthday in 1898. In the late 1950's, James de Rothschild passed away and the Manor developed into a very popular tourist attraction after it was entrusted to the National Trust. There are plenty of things which attract visitors to Waddesdon Manor including excellent restaurants, conference areas, gift shops, childrens area, a first class wedding venue, a garden centre and more in addition to the gardens and the awesome residence itself featuring its displays of fine art, sculptures and fine furniture. Varied events can be attended at Waddesdon Manor and grounds all year round such as art exhibitions, food markets, carol singing, wine tasting events, and horticultural events.

Waddesdon throughout the years has been a typically agricultural village, it has previously had the titles Votesdone (11th century) and Woddesdon (14th C), along with the present spelling of the name. During the 18th century the village for a while explored the possibility of silk manufacturing, a tiny factory being started in 1843 as an addition to a larger factory in neighbouring Aylesbury. Pillow lace manufacturing was in addition carried out by a number of the female citizens of the parish through the middle to late nineteenth century. The construction of Waddesdon's parish church Saint Michael & All Angels began in 1190, it was expanded & embellished repeatedly through the ages, particularly in the medieval & Victorian periods. The Font dates from around 1400, the church tower was renewed in 1892, substituting the former one constructed in the fourteenth century.
