Morecambe Bay's first ever naked cross bay walk.

The naturists wore clothes as they set off from Arnside beach, but disrobed around half a mile from shore and later put their clothes back on a similar distance from the beach at the end of the walk.

The group also complied with social distancing regulations during the walk, part of which involved wading through knee-high water.
