British Naturism, a 50-year-old organisation boasting more than 9,000 members, organised a narrowboat trip down a Staffordshire canal as part of they ongoing campaign to convince us that nudism is “a positive family lifestyle.”
40 members got together to enjoy a fish supper as they chugged down the Shropshire Union Canal in Stafford.
The boat was kept nice and warm inside, sensibly enough, which led to a steamy greenhouse atmosphere on board.
Organiser John Rodgers said there was a strict ‘no clothes policy’ on the jaunt.
John insisted: “A naturist environment inspires freedom, body positivity and has been proven to make people happier, improving mental health and wellbeing.”

Norbury Wharf Limited, which organises regular fish and chip cruises on its 42-seater trip boat The Shropshire Star, agreed to host the event with director David Ray manning the bar and serving the fish and chips.
British Naturism also organises regular naked cycle rides, swimming sessions, dining and garden visits as well as offering a range of summer holidays.
