Great Thurlow and Little Thurlow Villages
Great Thurlow and Little Thurlow are adjacent villages situated in the south-west corner of Suffolk within a few miles of both Cambridgeshire and Essex. The villages have a rich documented history which can be found in the Publications section of this website. Each village has retained a separate identity with its own Parish Council and church. The villages each have populations of just over 200 and are served by a school, pub, shop and garage and share a village hall and sports field. The dominant natural feature is the River Stour which sustains within it many kinds of fish and attracts a wide range of birds and animals.
Barn Owl Box
In January Little Thurlow Parish Council was invited by Suffolk Wildlife Trust to apply for a free barn owl box to be erected at a community site in the village. It was felt that the church yard would be ideal and with the agreement of St Peter's Church PCC, an assessment was carried out as to the best place for installation. The goal is to help barn owls spread their wings across mid and west Suffolk so let's hope for success in our area.
