NATURISTS plan on stripping off their shorts, t-shirts and dresses to bare their birthday suit in the first ever nudist walk across Morecambe Bay this summer.
Over 100 nudists are expected to attend an organised walk between Arnside and Kents Bank on June 20 in an event hoped to encourage more people to embrace their naked bodies.
The event follows an excursion to Roanhead Beach last August in which around a dozen naturists topped up their tans in the sunshine.
Legally, any person is allowed to sunbathe naked on any beach, however, good beach etiquette would mean sticking to designated nudist beaches.
Event organiser Ron O’Hare leads naturist events in the county – and has been practising the controversial lifestyle choice for over 20 years.
Up to 500 people will be allowed on the naturist walk, however, Mr O’Hare is expecting around 100 brave souls to don their birthday suits.
The 69-year-old, of British Naturism, said the group is ‘really excited’ take on a new route, with hopes to see newcomers join the naturist excursion.
He said: “We’ve not done this route before so we’re really excited to take it on.
“It’s going to be a fantastic venture which has never been done in the nude before.
“It’s an iconic walk to take on which people have walked for many years.
“We’re really excited for it and hope to see as many people as possible come along.
