Little Staughton is a small village in the north of Bedfordshire, along the border with Huntingdonshire. The parish is part of the Stodden Hundred.

The parish church is All Saints. It is set apart from the present village – the previous village having been abandoned following an outbreak of the Bubonic plague.


During Second World War, Little Staughton was the home of 109 Squadron (flying Mosquito bombers) and 582 Squadron (flying Lancaster bombers).

The airfield (on the Huntingdonshire side of the border) is now largely used for other purposes but retains a recently listed Control tower.
