 Introduction

Welcome to our Naturist Ramblers webpage! As our name implies we are a group who enjoy walking nude in the Great British Countryside where circumstances permit. Yes, it is possible to enjoy walking in parts of the countryside of South and South East England in the nude. The fact is that few people wander further than 200 yards from a car park. Quite often we are able to walk for several hours without meeting anybody!

We originally started these walks in 1993 under the title of Singles' Outdoor Club (SOC) Walks, but in 2016 the walkers separated from SOC and the Naturist Ramblers (Nat Ram) were set up as a group that totally concentrated on naturist walking. Naturist Ramblers is affiliated to British Naturism (BN).

A frequently asked question relates to the legality of what we do. For many years the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has made it clear that our style of nude walking is not illegal. In the spring of 2018 the Police further clarified the situation by actually putting it in writing that passive nude rambling is a lawful activity.

The object of our walks is to enjoy the exhilaration of walking without the encumbrance of clothing. Our walks are open to all naturists over the age of 18 who agree to abide by the Naturist Ramblers Constitution.

The walks are planned to take place in fairly uninhabited parts of the countryside to minimise the chance of meeting textile (clothed) walkers. The walks generally start from a pub at about mid-day and are between 10 and 14 miles in length. Some walks do have shorter alternatives.

We usually conclude our day with supper together in the pub, so you might like to arrange to be free all day if you are coming to join us. If you have to get away a little earlier, be aware that particularly when the weather is fine we may not return to the starting point until 7.00pm.

The walks are not 'route marches', but as a group we do need to maintain a steady pace. The going along footpaths through woods and over fields can be rough and at times muddy underfoot in places, so you need to be reasonably fit.
