Based in the Village of Lavendon located centrally between the towns of Northampton to the North, Bedford to the south, Milton Keynes to the West and Wellingborough to the East. Grid IO92QE.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavendon
Lots and lots of History in this place. It once had a Castle in the 13th Century and a Monetastery in the 16th Century. The Village is also in the Doomsday Book. Please see Wikipedia link above.

For those who don't know what the Doomsday Book is:-

At the midwinter [1085], was the king in Glocester with his council ... . After this had the king a large meeting, and very deep consultation with his council, about this land; how it was occupied, and by what sort of men. Then sent he his men over all England into each shire; commissioning them to find out "How many hundreds of hides were in the shire, what land the king himself had, and what stock upon the land; or, what dues he ought to have by the year from the shire."

The book was created and still exists. It is the first full survey of England and was the first ever book to collect taxes.

The book is the reason why we all today have surnames, before that we were all known by our Christian names and what we all did for a living - interesting stuff!
