Little Staughton is a small village and civil parish located in the north of Bedfordshire. The parish is part of the Stodden Hundred (which comprises Bolnhurst, Clapham, Dean and Shelton, Keysoe, Knotting, Little Staughton, Melchbourne, Milton Ernest, Oakley, Pertenhall & Swineshead, Riseley, Shelton, Tilbrook and Yelden). The parish church, All Saints, is set apart from the present village – the previous village having been abandoned following an outbreak of the Bubonic plague.

During World War II it was the home of 109 Squadron (Mosquito bombers) and 582 Squadron (Lancaster bombers).

The airfield is now largely used for other purposes but retains a recently listed Control tower.
