A crowd of brave exhibitionists plunged into an Oxfordshire lake naked in a bid to break the record for the world’s largest skinny dip.
The swimmers – who had not met each other before – were taken to one of the lakes surrounding the Wilderness Festival at Cornbury Park.
The naked swim was also staged to celebrate the launch of a new secret swimming club which will bring together people every month and invite them to swim in the wildest, most beautiful places.
The locations will be kept secret till the last moment and only released to the Secret Swimming community.
The idea is the brainchild of Secret Cinema creators – a group responsible for theatrical hidden screenings.
“When you go skinny dipping late at night on a beach somewhere with a group of friends, it’s an amazing experience,” said Future Cinema and Secret Swimming founder Fabien Riggall.
“It’s fun. I think our audience is looking for ways of doing things that are a bit different.”
