Since Thalore is situated at a slightly higher altitude compared to neighbouring villages it got the name Thaloor (Malayalam: തലൂര്) from the two Malayalam words തല (meaning head) and ഊര് (meaning place). Thaloor later became Thalore.
The Infant Jesus Church at a height of 96 feet above sea level, is the highest situated structure in the village. From there, the terrain slowly tapers down towards all sides; the village boundary is approximately 30 feet above sea level.
Old NH-47 to Thrissur passes through Thalore centre. The new NH-47 by-pass to Palakkad is now the south-east boundary. Thaikkattussery road connects the old NH-47 from Thalore centre to Thaikkattusery. Both KSRTC and private bus services connect Thalore to Thrissur in the north and Amballur, Pudukkad, Kodakara and Chalakkudy in the south. The nearest railway stations are Ollur and Pudukkad stations where local passenger services stop. Express trains are available from Thrissur.
In the 1970s, the paddy fields became economically non-viable, and were soon turned into clay brick farms. Thalore and its neighbouring places became the epicenter of this clay brick business, and it remains a major source of income for villagers. Like any other village in Kerala, Thalore also has a significant non-resident kerala community which also brings resources to the village.
There are around 10 tile and brick factories operate in Thalore.
