Lunch stop in Cranfield (cafe, church and pub), afternoon stop at Hula, my GPS clocked 14.2 miles, I had to apologise to the  bus driver 'cos I leant on the request stop button (he smiled, phew), not many waves from the motorway, Ellen Pettit Memorial Hall - Ellen Pettit was the wife of Alfred Pettit and he funded the building of the hall when she died - 1927.  The hall was built in the grounds of the then vicarage which is now Shelton house. They retired to Woburn Sands sometime before the First World War to Aspley Heath. He was a churchwarden and involved with the golf club.  Alfred died in 1934.
