Located at Marbury Country Park, Comberbach, Cheshire, Marbury open air pool announces a Great British Skinny Dip and BBQ on 27th July 2021.

Naturism is increasing in popularity in the UK with more and more people gaining the health and well-being benefits that come with a clothes-free lifestyle. And one of the most exhilarating ways to experience the life-affirming feeling of being naked is swimming.

This summer hundreds of people across the UK have been skinny dipping to raise money for British Heart Foundation. They will improve their mental and physical health and wellbeing, body confidence and reduce their stress. They’ll also have great fun!

Marbury open air pool is hosting a skinny dip as part of the Great British Skinny Dip on Tuesday 27th July from 7.15pm-9.15pm BST. The pool is set in the grounds of Marbury Country Park. A gas BBQ is available if you bring your own food. There is also a tuck-shop serving ice creams, cold drinks, slushies and bean-to-cup coffee.

The open-air pool was built in the 1930s for the members of Marbury Hall Country Club, was then used for many years by ICI employees, and is now run by Marbury Park Swimming Club.

Marbury Country Park lies in the heart of Northwich Community Woodlands, an integral part of the Mersey Forest. Former industrial land is gradually being transformed to create a rich and green environment stretching from Marbury to Northwich.

Gavin Ball from Marbury Park Swimming Club said:

‘We’re delighted to host an event under the banner of the Great British Skinny Dip and show that there are no barriers to who can make use of our wonderful venue. The health and well-being benefits of swimming outdoors are well-known and we’re pleased to be able to encourage dippers to raise money for British Heart Foundation.’

Ron O’Hare from British Naturism said:

‘More and more venues are seeing the commercial value in hosting events for the growing number of people who want to swim without a costume. We’re really looking forward to our skinny dip at Marbury Park – and hope that it’s the first of many!
