The name “Haddenham” is derived from the Old English Hǣdanhām, “Hǣda’s Homestead” or, perhaps Hǣdingahām, “the home of the Hadding tribe”. It is possible that the first villagers were members of the Hadding tribe from Haddenham in Cambridgeshire.

Haddenham is one of only three “wycheert” villages” in England. Wychert is a method of building with a white clay mixed with straw to make walls and buildings, which are then thatched or topped with red clay tiles.

Haddenham used to have several more pubs than today. The Anchor and the Eight Bells at Church End are now private houses. The Waggon and Horses in High Street was converted into the Peking Rendezvous Chinese restaurant, but closed in 2013. The Red Lion in Church End also closed in 2013.

Haddenham has been the setting for a number of television programmes includin Jeeves and Wooster,  and eight episodes of Midsomeer Murders. The village appears in the second Muppet film,  The Great Muppet Caper. Most recently Church End has bee used as a backcloth for Lady Penelope and her trusty chauffeur Parker in a Halifax Ad and for the TV series ‘Pennyworth’, exploring the life of Batman’s Butler, Alfred, in 1960s England.
