Great Dunmow, and it's near neighbour, Little Dunmow, is a small market town close to Stansted Airport and the M11 in rural Essex. Standing on the Roman Stane Street, it was formerly a centre of the woollen trade and thrived during the Middle Ages. Many buildings survive from this period, including a sixteenth century town hall. Today the town is a traditional market town with shopping in the High Street. Little Dunmow is a village about three miles from Great Dunmow. The Flitch Way, a country park along the route of the old Braintree to Bishop's Stortford railway, links the old and new villages of Little Dunmow. Dunmow is well known for the Flitch Trials, actually started in Little Dunmow around 1120, and held every four years. Married couples must convince a jury of six local bachelors and six local maidens that they have ‘never wished themselves un-wed for a year and a day’. The successful couple are paraded through the High Street and receive a flitch of bacon. Local attractions include Easton Lodge Gardens, restored 1902 Italian gardens, with a small museum and exhibition, Little Easton Manor, on Park Road, and Great Dunmow Maltings, originally used to produce malt and now housing the town’s museum.
