A Flitch trial is held every four years, where five couples compete to win a 'flitch' or side of bacon, and to be carried on chairs through the streets to the cheers of the watching crowd. The five couples are cross-examined in an open trial to prove that they have not had a cross word for at least a year and a day, and are still experiencing wedded bliss. Apart from quaint traditions, Great Dunmow lies north west of Chelmsford, just off the A120, between Braintree and Stansted (Stansted Airport).
