Details

Small market town, steeped in history. Mellow plaster cottages, riverside church and beautifully restored Malting. The town is well known for its four-yearly ritual of the "Flitch Trials", in which 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. If successful the couple are paraded along the High Street and receive a flitch of bacon. The town's history is explained in the Maltings Museum on Mill Lane.
