Review of Waddesdon: Waddesdon in the county of Buckinghamshire is an ancient agricultural area based roughly six miles west of Aylesbury, it has a church originating from the 13th century. Waddesdon has been for the most part an estate village since the late 19th century when the lovely Renaissance style Waddesdon Manor was conceived by the well-off Rothschilds family, alongside housing for the house staff.

Numerous buildings established for the Rothschilds (housing built for manor employees, the Five Arrows hotel & the village hall) still dominate the village today and they are inhabited by and valued by its population of about two thousand (census of 2011). The parish of Waddesdon covers approximately 7,000 acres (combined with Westcott, Eythrope, Woodham and Wormstone). Waddesdon formerly had a railway station which linked it with nearby Aylesbury, this has long since closed and the village can now only be reached by road (A41).

Waddesdon Manor HouseWaddesdon Over the Centuries: Until the Conquest by the Normans, Waddesdon was certainly a Saxon village, the manor being possessed by Brictric, one of Queen Edith's men. In the 1086 Domesday Book the manor was priced at 27 hides & recorded as being possessed by Miles Crispin. Afterwards Waddesdon manor was given to Henry of Oxford and later on to the Courtenay family, it changed hands many times until eventually passing to John 7th Duke of Marlborough. In 1874 the Duke of Marlborough sold off his extensive Bucks landed estate, including Waddesdon and surrounding areas, to Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, a politician (he was High Sheriff of Bucks and Liberal MP for Aylesbury), art collector and the rich Austrian Rothschild banking dynasty.

Waddesdon Manor House: The Rebirth (Renaissance) style Waddesdon Manor House was then constructed by Ferdinand de Rothschild, reproducing a sixteenth century French chateau, wine cellars and all. The estate and manor was inherited by Baron Ferdinand's sister, Alice Charlotte de Rothschild, in 1898, after Ferdinand passed away at the Manor on the same day as his birth in 1898. As well as acting as a family residence the Manor was built to house the substantial collection of furniture, tapestries and art, accumulated by the Baron. A totally new tourism hotspot appeared as soon as the National Trust took over the administration of Waddesdon Manor right after the passing of James de Rothschild. There are plenty of elements which attract sightseers to Waddesdon Manor for example good restaurants, meeting areas, gift shops, children's corner, a first class wedding venue, a garden centre and more combined with the gardens plus the beautiful residence itself featuring its collection of fine art, statues and furniture. Plenty of functions and events take place at the Manor all year round like art displays, carol singing, food markets, wine tastings, and horticultural shows.

In addition to the modern name the community of Waddesdon has also been named Votesdone (11th century) and Woddesdon (fourteenth century), throughout the generations it has primarily endured through farming. In addition to agriculture, lace manufacturing and silk making are additional ways by which local folks have made a little money in Waddesdon in the past. St Michael and All Angels parish church was first constructed in about 1190 in the village, the font is from around 1400 & the current church tower from 1892.
