Review of Waddesdon: A historic farming area which has a thirteenth century church, Waddesdon is located about ten kilometres west of the town of Aylesbury in The county of Bucks. Waddesdon has been basically an estate village since the end of the 19th century when the attractive Renaissance style Waddesdon Manor was built by the affluent Rothschilds dynasty, alongside accommodation for the staff.

With a present population of roughly 2,100 (in 2011), modern day Waddesdon continues to be dominated by buildings constructed for the Rothschilds (houses built for manor staff, the Five Arrows hotel & the village hall). The parish (coupled with Eythrope, Westcott, Wormstone & Woodham) accounts for an area of 7,252 acres. At one time linked with neighbouring Aylesbury by way of railway, Waddesdon rail station has long since shut down and the village may only be reached by road (namely the A41).

Waddesdon's Manor HouseThe Story of Waddesdon: Undoubtedly a Saxon settlement prior to the Norman conquest, Waddesdon manor was controlled by one of Queen Edith's men, Brictric, in those long gone, largely unrecorded times. In the 1086 Domesday Book the manor was listed to be held by Miles Crispin & priced at 27 hides. Waddesdon manor was controlled by a number of members of society previous to finally ending up with John, 7th Duke of Marlborough during the 19th century, including Henry of Oxford, the Courtenay family and Thomas Earl of Devon. Art enthusiast, politician & member of a successful Austrian banking dynasty, Ferdinand de Rothschild, acquired the whole Buckinghamshire landed estate of the Duke of Marlborough in 1874, including Waddesdon & surrounding areas.

Waddesdon Manor: The Renaissance (Rebirth) style Waddesdon Manor House was later built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, reproducing a 16th C French chateau, wine cellars and all. The estate and manor passed to Ferdinand's sister, Alice Charlotte de Rothschild, in 1898, after Baron Ferdinand died at the Manor itself on the same day as his birth in 1898. Waddesdon Manor was entrusted to the National Trust upon the death of James de Rothschild in 1957, it eventually came to be a famous visitor attraction. Present day Waddesdon Manor offers large landscaped gardens, a world-famous collection of paintings, furniture and decorative arts, a plant centre, a Rococo style aviary, gift shops, a quality wine cellar, meeting areas, a marriage venue (The Dairy at Waddesdon), a kid's corner, gift shops and top notch restaurants. Various functions and events are held at the Manor all through the year like art displays, carol singing, food markets, wine samplings, and horticultural events.

Waddesdon across the ages was a traditionally agricultural village, it has previously had the titles Votesdone (11th century) and Woddesdon (fourteenth century), in addition to the present spelling. Apart from agriculture, lace making and silk making were alternative ways in which local folk made a little money in Waddesdon through the years. The structure of Waddesdon's parish church St Michael & All Angels was started in 1190, it was extended & embellished regularly across the ages, particularly during the medieval & Victorian periods. The Font was built in about 1400, the tower was renewed in 1892, substituting the original one built during the 14th century.
