Hi all, we're Ian and Carol, been naturists together since 2001 when our first weekend away together was to a naturist b&b. We've been to a few places here in the UK, Lower Poulza post near Bude, St Annes cottage at Ringwood (not far from Studland), the Yorkshire Sun Society site near Hull, Lakeside in Lincolnshire, and had day trips to Morfa in Wales and a few to Holkham. We're looking to find friends who have naturism in common with us as well as other things, so I'd better tell you more about us. We're both 56 (for another few weeks as far as I'm concerned), and we're both working on losing weight. Carol is working as a supervisor in a small supermarket, getting home and slogging her guts out on a degree course in Archaeology which involves going into London at least twice a week. She's been doing work on a local dig, and in July she's doing one near Peterborough for a week as part of her course. I work in the local train station (hence why we can get anywhere in Essex by train, and most of Suffolk and Norfolk), selling tickets, giving information, and being a source of knowledge and wisdom. In the past I've worked as an insurance agent (not as exciting as it sounds, believe me), and done a B.Tec course in Hotel and Catering operations at Blackpool as I'm originally a Lancashire lad. To relax we like mindless television (Elementary, Ascension, Extant, DIY SOS) reading (most of what Carol reads is related to her course, at the moment its about the Romans, next year its the Greeks, and I'll read the cornflake packet if nothing else is available but I prefer comedy, scifi or horror.) In March we're going to see Steeleye Span at the Playhouse in Harlow, and we'd both like to get out and see more things, but shift patterns get in the way. Come September we'll be going away for a fortnight in our campervan ("Tucker")possibly up into Scotland (depending on how cheap petrol stays at) or at least as far as the Lakes and Cumbria. I will be looking into us staying at least a couple of nights at a naturist site. Anyway, if you read all this, well done, treat yourself to a coffee or tea. Thanks, Ian (and Carol.)
I have just joined the site today. Although not been naturist very long i do enjoy strolling through the woods and countryside around Colchester. I am married but unfortunatly my wife does not enjoy indulging. So i keep this away from her. When alone at home i go naked as much as possible. I am retired now so if anyone wants to meet during weekdays I am up to share time.
Admin: Naturism is growing in popularity around the UK but in Essex it seems to move at a snails pace. Please post here any ideas that you have that you think will help promote the cause of naturism as a more popular lifestyle.

ukduo2004: Hi all, nice to find this group. Ok, I'll hold my hands up, technically we're not in Essex, but about 800 yards this side of the Hertfordshire notice board.

jayce1234: Hi Paul .... Sounds an interesting arrangement. What is the state of the beach these days ? Last time I visited 2013 it resembled an abandoned film set from Saving Private Ryan or the Longest Day with rubble all over the place......most up inviting .

nudeandhappy: I have been using the beach at Walton-on-the-Naze recently. Once you get away from the main beach near the tower there are few people around. I usually walk to the southern end of the sea wall then strip off and can usually walk right up to the far end....

nudeandhappy: ...but yesterday and today it was quite windy but I managed to find a secluded spot on the cliffs, at the edge of the woods where I spent several hours reading, relaxing and sunbathing, completely naked.

nudeandhappy: Went to St. Osyth yesterday - 1st time in about 20 years! Weather was perfect but, at 10am and the holiday season over, there were very few people around such that I was able to walk nude from the car to the beach and back again!! Fantastic.

frintonguy: Sounds like a good idea to me, what part of Essex are you located?

juliephil: As an ex semi-pro photographer, I'm available to take those awkward to get naturist photos of members here and their friends. There is no fee, it gives me a couple of hours relief from being my wife's 24/7 carer. Please get in touch if you are interested.

massageman: Hope this is allowed - if not please delete. Wanted to introduce myself and my partner - we are both naturists, life models and qualified massage therapists. We are more than happy to provide undraped massages for other genuine naturists. pm for details.

jayce1234: Does anyone have a July 2016 perspective on Bradwell beach and whether it is still sympathetic towards naturist relaxation ..... If you have any info perhaps you might e mail to me ...... Jayce48@hotmail.co.uk.... Many thanks...... Jc

nudeandhappy: I have started going to Walton on the Naze beach - it is very quiet as you go towards The Naze end of the beach such that I can walk naked for an hour or so and sunbathe naked at any point along the beach.

nudeandhappy: Had another nice day at Walton on the Naze - walked to the southern end of the sea wall, removed my trunks and then walked nude for about 40 minutes to the very end where I relaxed, read and sunbathed watching the yachts come and go.

nudeandhappy: Change of venue today - went to St. Osyth. Mainly men but some ladies which was refreshing. Fantastic weather - managed a dip in the sea!
