Dozens of brave naturists stripped off their shorts and t-shirts to take part in the first nudist walk across Morecambe Bay.
The event attracted 61 people on Sunday to take on the five-mile walk from Arnside to Grange and was dubbed a ‘great success’ by its organiser Ron O’Hare.
Mr O’Hare, who has been practising the controversial lifestyle choice for more than 20 years, joined 60 others in baring all to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation.
“It was a fantastic day from start to finish,” he said.
“The weather was just perfect, there was no wind at all. Although a bit less showed up than we expected, there was still 61 people there – some of which were new faces which was great.”
The adults-only British Naturism event was led by the Queen’s Guide Michael Wilson and his team of marshals.
And Mr O’Hare is already planning the group’s next naked adventure.
“Everyone was asking when are we doing it again – they loved it so much,” he said.
“Hopefully the popularity keeps growing and we see more and more people come with us on these walks.”
Legally, any person is allowed to sunbathe naked on any beach, however, good beach etiquette would mean sticking to designated nudist beaches.
