back to article Surrey nudists tossed out into the cold after lease expires

A group of Surrey naturists is looking for an accommodating farmer, after their landlord refused to renew the lease on their old site. The Surrey Downs Sun Club leased their site from a holiday and residential company, which has decided to expand its own facilities at the Farley Green site, the Surrey Advertiser reports. The …

        How is this funny? Nudism has nothing to do with screwing.

          I'm surprised that the author didn't manage to squeeze the word "cock" in somehow.

          Seems to be de rigueur these days on El Reg.

          Wasn't there a farm involved? 1/10 for effort.

    Why be furious?

    Surely if the caterham crowd are naturists then they see nothing wrong with being naked, so why would they be bothered if they are being overlooked?

    Paris, obviously ;)

      How is that at all logical? They don't want idiots gawping at them. It's not difficult to understand.

      I really am curious as to what is up with you all today. It's even more ridiculous than usual.

            I was referring to your comment on why the comments seem even more ridiculous than usual today. I was attempting to be clever by blaming substance abuse. Too obtuse it seems.

      Maybe they don't want to find themselves all over youtube (or whatever). Maybe that's also why nudist camps don't allow non-nudists to freely wander around gawking at the danglies.

      Most nudists enjoy the freedom of nudity, not the spectacle of exhibitionism.

      Future Concerns

      If I remember correctly they were concerned that after the tower was built, someone would complain about all the naked people their little 5 year daughter can see from their window and then the site would be shutdown.

      I.e. that the tower development was the first step to evicting them by the back door.

        If the naturists got into calenders one would think they would come out all flat and smooth...




        a machine in which cloth, paper, or the like, is smoothed, glazed, etc., by pressing between rotating cylinders.


        a machine for impregnating fabric with rubber, as in the manufacture of automobile tires.

        to press in a calender.

            "There's a proliferation of stupid comments around here today"

            But surely that was the idea behind the article, right?

            I mean, an article about a landlord refusing to renew a lease, in Bootnotes?! Ah, but the leaseholders were nudists. Now, what sort of comments were being invited here then? Clearly, not discussing the intricacies of property law?

    I wonder about the clubhouse and chalets. I hope the club members don't forget to demolish them and grub up all the power cables and plumbing they have laid.

    Minority Groups

    Naturists get a particularly bad deal all round. Continually harassed by police and local councils who don't actually know what the law is. Victims of stupid infantile sniggering in the media. Landlords that run roughshod over their rights the moment the smell money. Even developers that infiltrate clubs to get enough members so they can vote the club into selling off its land.

    The naturists I know are just about the nicest people I've ever met.

    As an ex-member of this particular club, I can say that they were a nice bunch of people with nothing but the best of intentions and motives. It is fair to say that the time that the club has existed is a positive testament to this.

    Any attempt to gain a cheap laugh at them or their chosen lifestyle is really pathetic.

    In other words, "Grow Up and stop acting like snickering school children."

    1. Charles Manning

      Get over yourself

      Perhaps the reason the club was moved on had very little to do with clothing. Perhaps the landlord just tired of uptight people with their un-panties in a bunch.
