    27 June 2017 11:15 - 27 June 2017 14:30

    5.5 Mile part nude/part clothed Nordic Walking session in a rural area outside of Basingstoke.

    The session will consist of some clothed basic instruction on Nordic Walking technique, then a short clothed walk through to a quiet, rural area where we can disrobe and practice the technique. Once everyone has grasped the basics, we will continue the walk (hopefully nude) through mainly farmland and woods. Throughout the walk I will be offering advice and guidance on Nordic Walking technique to everyone to ensure you get the most out of walking with the poles, as well as enjoying the scenery and of course the company of your fellow walkers. 

    There is a section in the middle of the walk where we go past a farm, across a field and through a small village. I suggest we cover up for this part of the walk so as not to cause any unwanted attention.

    The walk itself covers 5.5 miles and I anticipate it will take approx 3-3.5 hours with a couple of breaks for drinks and snacks. We will walk at the pace of the slowest walker.
    Nordic Walking poles will be provided.

    There are a number of stiles to climb over and some rather overgrown nettle patches along the way. 
    Please ensure you are fit and able to negotiate stiles if you attend this walk and I would recommend you have something suitable to cover your legs if you are concerned about nettle stings. You can push the worst of them away with the poles, but you will get stung a little with bare legs. With the warm weather, the nettles in Hampshire have gone a bit crazy!

    I have walked this route on a number of occasions and rarely encountered people, but of course I cannot guarantee this on the day. 
    While we are within our legal rights to express ourselves through walking without clothes, it is important to balance our right to express this, with ensuring local people feel comfortable if they come across us walking.

    There is an interesting and informative article about the legalities of naked rambling in the latest BN magazine. 

    I would ask that everyone be prepared to cover up if I feel it is necessary at any time.

    The walk will cost £15 per person, payable in advance by bank transfer.

    The terrain is relatively flat. Please ensure you are able to walk for at least 5.5 miles if you book onto this walk.


    Please do reply by email if you are interested in attending, can make the date and time and are willing to pay in advance to secure you place for this walk. 

    The nearest train station is Basingstoke, 6 miles from the start point of our walk.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    17 July 2017 16:00 - 17 July 2017 18:30

    A Naturist Visit to Houghton Lodge Gardens,
    near Stockbridge in Hampshire
    Naked Southampton and the London and South East Region of British Naturism, have arranged a visit to Houghton Lodge Gardens on Monday 17th July from 17.00 – 19.30hrs. The gardens are alongside the River Test, in a beautiful setting, and are an ideal place to enjoy some outdoor Naturism.
    Admission at the entrance is £6.50. Children over 3yrs cost £3 (must be accompanied by an adult). As we have to collect the money I’m afraid its cash only, and no cards.
    The visit is not just for BN members, so you can tell your Naturist friends about it. Please note that this is a Naturist and not a clothes optional event.
    You cannot bring your own food and drink into the gardens or associated buildings, but it can be eaten in the non-Naturist parking area. There is a cafe, which will be open until 18.00hrs, at our request for teas, coffee’s and other soft drinks. There also will be cakes and biscuits available to buy on the night and some panini. They can do quiche with cheese, salad, bread and pickles, tea/coffee for £6.50, but this needs to be ordered in advance and paid for via myself (John Rodgers), at least two weeks before the visit. I need to have your requirements and the money by Monday 3rd July. Please don’t forget that towels are required to sit on in cafe.
    Dogs on short leads are allowed in the gardens. However any waste must be picked up, and taken off site. There are no disposal bins at the gardens.
    For any further information in respect of our visit please contact Regional Representative John Rodgers on 07914 186466 or email lserep@bn.org.uk . Full contact details are in the B.N magazine. You can also visit the gardens website for more information about them. http://houghtonlodge.co.uk/
    The full address is Houghton Lodge Gardens, Houghton, Stockbridge, Hampshire, SO20 6LQ
