Established in 1927 Fiveacres country club was the first naturist club in Great Britain.
Its origins go back even further, in 1924 a group of nudists, or gymnosophists as they were called in those days, gathered together at a site near Wickford in Essex, which belonged to one of their members.
They called the site 'The Camp' and grew their modest membership from 8 to 25 people, meeting every weekend.
Because people then,had a very different view of nudism, the members all went under assumed names to protect their identities.
They eventually had to give up their piece of land, but thankfully managed to aquire the land at Bricket Wood where the club is now.
Over the years, the club grounds have changed hands several times over.
Today, the club is run and managed by Pat Badham, and you can read her interview on Nudist UK.com by clicking here
She is assisted by a few volunteers who take care of the day to day maintenance such as cleaning the pool, cutting the grass and hedges and creating flower displays, and also keep the clubhouse in its gleaming condition.
