    I've practiced naturism a little bit on my own but I'm keen to find out if there are opportunities to meet up with others who are interested in this in Oxford. Let me know if youre interested too.

    I'm interested, but not in Oxford. Perhaps try Brighton?

    Is there anyone else in Oxford who is a naturist or is interested in trying it?

    In my day, there was a spot on the Cherwell, known as Parson's Pleasure, where male naked bathing traditionally took place.

    A well known anecdote has it that one day, as a group of dons were bathing there, a female student floated past in a punt. All the dons covered their genitals, except for Maurice Bowra (the erstwhile Warden of Wadham), who covered his face. "I don't know about you gentlemen," he said, "but around here, I am mainly recognised by my face".

    Oxford wit.

    There was a corresponding spot on the river for female bathing. I think both have since closed, but why not revive the tradition?*

    There might be a nude swim organised somewhere nearby- try the British Naturism website. Or when you are in London, visit the spa near Alexandra Palace.

    No, in Barnet. Hence the suggestion about when in London. One of the people I have occasionally spoken to at the spa in Alexandra Palace comes from Oxford and visits when in London.

    I'm afraid not. Oxford is already replete with old ruins and wrinkled retainers.
