Review of Waddesdon: Placed approximately ten kilometres to the west of Aylesbury, the village and parish of Waddesdon is an ancient agricultural area that has a thirteenth century parish church. Waddesdon has mostly been an estate village since the end of the 19th century at which time the fabulous Renaissance style Waddesdon Manor was put up by the wealthy Rothschilds family, together with accommodation for the staff.

Still dominated by structures erected for the Rothschilds (housing built for manor workers, the Five Arrows hotel & the village hall), the village today has a population of approximately two thousand (2011). The parish (including Eythrope, Woodham, Wormstone and Westcott) comprises about seven thousand acres. Formerly connected to neighbouring Aylesbury via rail, Waddesdon rail station is now closed and the village may only be got to by road (namely the A41).

Later on Waddesdon manor was to be accorded to Henry of Oxford and then to the Courtenay family, it switched hands again and again until eventually ending up with John 7th Duke of Marlborough. It was formerly named 7th Duke of Marlborough (John Spencer Churchill) who, in 1874, sold Waddesdon & his complete Buckinghamshire estate to Ferdinand de Rothschild an MP, art collector and the successful Rothschild banking dynasty of Austria.

Waddesdon Manor House: The Renaissance style Waddesdon Manor House was later established by Ferdinand de Rothschild, reproducing a 16th C French chateau, right down to the wine cellars. The estate passed to The Baron's sister, Alice Charlotte de Rothschild, in 1898, when Baron Ferdinand died at the Manor itself in 1898, on his 59th birthday. Aside from housing the Baron's extensive collection of furniture, art and tapestries, the Manor also functioned as a residence. In the late 1950's, right after the passing of James de Rothschild, Waddesdon Manor House was handed to the National Trust, it afterwards developed into a very popular tourist attraction.
