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 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.
Memories of Thurlow
From Julian Jones:
A few weeks ago I published my 3rd great grandmother's memoir on Smashwords.
Here is the link:
40% is free. In that 40% Madelina Fobres Mitchell (nee Smith) writes about being born at Thurlow Hall and part of her family's life there.
I would be thrilled to know Madelina's story reached her home town.
