Village News & Information

Walks Round The Thurlows

walksA guide for the visitor who would like to explore the villages on foot. Great and Little Thurlow are twin villages on the western edge of Suffolk, both very old settlements – with many reminders today of their long and interesting history in the landscape of fields, hedges and woods and in the houses and other buildings. The guide sets out eight different walks, which between them take you past all the most noteworthy features and provide background information on the history of the buildings and some of their more famous inhabitants. There are also notes on the birds, flowers and trees you can expect to see on the way round.

Those who cannot actually visit the villages in person can now take a free ‘virtual walk’ on this website, by clicking on the walk titles. Better to see the real thing, though.

The booklet is illustrated with excellent maps and line-drawings by Rachel Drury. The booklet is 20 pages long and copies of the booklet are for sale at the Village PO, priced £4.95.

All publications (with the exception of Little Thurlow 2000) are stocked at the Village PO and Stores, The Street, Great Thurlow, Suffolk CB9 7LA and are also available from Molly Hawkins, Tel: 01440 783259, This email address is being protected from spambots.
