Wootton Country Players


In November 2004 we lost one of our most loyal members, Jean Wadley, in a tragic motor accident.

We have donated a bench in Jean's memory to the Marston Vale Forest project. This has been sited overlooking the valley of Marston where you can see Lidlington & part of Millbrook and Ampthill Park in the distance. You reach it via a path called "Clay Way" which starts in Cranfield at Holywell Lane, off Bedford Road. This was one of Jean's favourite walks. The bench is about a mile or so from the main road near to Marston Thrift (wood).

The bench was installed on 4th April 2006 and we had a get-together on 7th May (pictured left).
