Ashfield cum Thorpe
Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.
If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.
Now a dry parish. This small hamlet is recorded in Domesday as "Assefelda".
Although the Swan is recorded as early as 1844, A Survey of Suffolk Parish History tells us that an inn holder was recorded as far back as 1650; whether or not this was the same inn is unknown.
The church was rebuilt in 1853 in brick after laying in ruins for over a century.
We have so far been unable to find a map showing the boundary between Ashfield and Thorpe, so only the parish boundary appears on our map.
