The Dunmow Flitch Trials is an ancient custom with a traceable history back 900 years.  The Dunmow Flitch trials are mentioned by the Wife of Bath in Geoffrey Chaucer’s very explicit 14th century book ‘The Canterbury Tales.’   A book which is still printed and read.   The Trials were commonly known about in 14th century England.   We in Dunmow are proud to keep this tradition alive.  On Trials day - Saturday 10th July 2021 - you are invited to attend one, or all three court sittings at 10.30am, 2pm and 7pm, by purchasing tickets on this site.
