On our website you will find all sorts of interesting information about the village of Thurlby and the hamlet of Northorpe. Over time, as new houses have been built, these have joined together as one village

 There is information on its history and its people.

The website is very much a work in progress, I hope you enjoy your visit.

    Just spent the day at the church looking at the photos and WW1 stories. A big thank you to all who organised it and the Lincs family history society and church for providing records and information. Lovely tea and sandwiches at the Hall as well, brilliant.

      Hi Janet
      Thank you its lovely to hear from you,so pleased you enjoyed it – we had a great weekend with lots of lovely comments. All the information for the exhibition was from our research group in the village. Janet our Vicar wanted to research the WW1 Memorial and so she formed a group to do so, we have all been working since April to find out about the “men behind the names” – this is ongoing. The lovely old registers dating back to 1560 were recalled by St Firmin’s Church, from Lincolnshire Archives, just for the weekend.
      Mary
