Churchills Manor was formally known as The Firs Building but is best known as “Churchills Toy Shop”. “Churchill's Toyshop” was the name given to the Ministry of Defence 1 (MD1), which acted as a British weapons research and development organization in World War II. They designed, developed, and produced unique Special Forces and regular munitions and were led by Major Millis Jefferis and Stuart Macrae. “Churchill’s Toy Shop” was the name given to it by senior bureaucrats in the Ministry of Defence who were unhappy at being shut out from what was happening there.
The building was later used as office space before being acquired by Stonehouse in 2021. It has now been lovingly converted into 6 elegant homes to preserve the buildings history for future generations to come.

Churchills Manor is ideally located within easy reach of local amenities including a pub, petrol station with Post Office a general store and hairdressers, and only a short drive from the town of Aylesbury offering an abundance of amenities.
