Bacon Butty, that sounds nice fancy one now.

This is an old fashioned term not used any more, except perhaps in essex.

Lets have a recap.

Its an old custom (mentioned in Chaucer)
Takes place in Essex once every four years, used to be annually.
Couples compete against each other to receive this reward although all could be winners.
It took place last year (2008)
