The Pickwick Club - A well-established naturist club with a Spa-like swim

The Pickwick Club was established in Corsham in 1986 by a local couple whose family had been naturists for many years.

They felt that there was a niche for a swim club in the Wiltshire area as the nearest one to Corsham at that time was Chepstow in South Wales and the increasing cost of the Severn Bridge tolls and travel expenses made Chepstow an expensive evening.

Meetings with the Paris Council and North Wilts District Council were held and a trial swim took place in January 1986. Only the pool was available then, the hiring cost being 16 for one hour.

Approximately 16 naturists attended the first swim this figure including 4 children and a volunteer lifeguard. After several swims we had sufficient numbers to form a club.

The name Pickwick was chosen as the pool is located near Pickwick Road and the village of Pickwick Nr Bath.

A steering committee was formed and Chairman Treasurer and Secretary elected.

Membership gradually increased and the introduction of the Health Suite, which included Sauna Jacuzzi and Steam Room, combined with an increase from one to two hours proved an extra bonus for our members.  

The Club also negotiated with a local farmer to rent a secluded and private area as a Club Site.

A quarterly Fun Night was subsequently added to our programme.

Pickwick is now a well-established naturist club with members travelling from all over the Wiltshire area and beyond .
