Review of Waddesdon: An age old agricultural community having a thirteenth century parish church, Waddesdon is placed approximately 6 miles west of the town of Aylesbury in Bucks. Waddesdon is doubtless most famous as being the location of the Rothschild dynasty built, French Renaissance style, Waddesdon Manor (currently maintained by the National Trust), attracting numerous tourists to the area.

A number of the buildings erected by the Rothschild family (dwellings built for manor personnel, the Five Arrows hotel & the village hall) still dominate present day Waddesdon and so are inhabited by & valued by its population of approximately 2,100 (census of 2011). Waddesdon parish comprises roughly seven thousand acres (including Eythrope, Westcott, Wormstone and Woodham). Waddesdon at one time had a train station which joined it to nearby Aylesbury, this has long since closed & the village can now only be reached by road (the A41).

The Manor at WaddesdonA Concise History of Waddesdon: Before the Norman conquest, Waddesdon was a Saxon village, the manor being retained by one of Queen Edith's men, Brictric. In the 1086 Domesday Book the manor was having a worth of 27 hides & shown as being retained by Miles Crispin. The manor of Waddesdon finally transferred to John, 7th Duke of Marlborough in the nineteenth century, having changed hands several times over the previous years. It was formerly named 7th Duke of Marlborough (John Spencer Churchill) who, in the 1870's, sold The parish of Waddesdon and his large Bucks estate to Ferdinand de Rothschild a politician, art enthusiast & the well-heeled Rothschild banking dynasty.

Waddesdon Manor: Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild subsequently went on to construct the amazing Waddesdon Manor House, on a design by Gabrielle-Hippolyte Destailleur, in the Renaissance style of a 16th century French chateau, wine cellars and all. Ferdinand died in 1898, his estate and manor passing down to his sister, Alice Charlotte de Rothschild. Besides showing off the Baron's vast collection of furniture, art and tapestries, the Manor also functioned as a residence. Another tourism hotspot came to be as soon as the National Trust took control of the management of Waddesdon Manor House after the death of James de Rothschild. Present day Waddesdon Manor has massive gardens, an internationally acclaimed displays of furniture, paintings and ornamental arts, a plant centre, a Rococo aviary, a wine cellar, gift shops, conference rooms, a wedding venue (The Dairy at Waddesdon), a childrens corner, gift shops and top notch restaurants. Waddesdon Manor and grounds also hosts diverse events and functions all year long including art displays, carol singing, food markets, horticultural events and wine tastings.

Other than the existing title the community of Waddesdon has also been named Votesdone (11th C) and Woddesdon (14th C), over the generations it's primarily survived through agriculture and farming. During the eighteenth century it momentarily tried out silk manufacture, with a modest factory becoming started in 1843 as an offshoot of a much bigger factory in nearby Aylesbury. Pillow lace manufacture was in addition done by many of the women of the parish during the mid to late nineteenth century. The building of the parish church Saint Michael & All Angels began in 1190, it was expanded & embellished regularly over the centuries, especially during the medieval & Victorian periods. The Font was built in about 1400, the tower was reconstructed in 1892, taking the place of the one erected in the fourteenth century.
