Identification of a tree - leaf photo

I found this leaf and i've never seen anything like it.  Anyone have an idea what kind of tree this came from?

 

Thanks for your help.

 

I put a women's size 8 flip flop beside the leaf to show size.

    Hi

     

    Without a picture of the tree or at least its branch I would say it looks like a leaf from an Indian bean tree. (Catalpa bignonioides) a tree from the USA not India as its name might suggest

     

    As you didn't say where you found it, I can only surmise if it's in the UK it's from an introduced plant.

     

    The flowers have a very nice scent and give way to long thin pods in the autumn.

     

    Regards
