Now residential, the Thurlow Arms was in the hamlet of Long Thurlow, which sits partly in Badwell Ash and partly in Great Ashfield.
A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Aug 1895 states that :
The sale by auction of the Thurlow Arms in Great Ashfield, including farm premises, two cottages and 42a 2r 31p of accommodation land to Mr E W Lake acting for Messrs. Greene, King, and Sons for £1425.
In Mar 1982 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that a fire had gutted an outbuilding of the GK owned Thurlow Arms - the third fire here in recent months. The pub was subsequently closed.
