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.

Bring your spare cuttings and plants for the bring and buy plant sale and go home with some new varieties including some from the garden.
