Legal Hackette Lunches with the Naked Rambler

by Catherine Baksi

Legal Journalism Award Winner 2016

“Over a picnic of roasted potatoes and mixed nuts on top of Winchester’s St Catherine’s Hill, the man dubbed the ‘Naked Rambler’ shares his thoughts on the burkini ban and the ‘mixed up’ nature of the law, and explains why he chose to spend years in jail to defend his right to go about in the buff.

I meet Stephen Gough at the top of a hill over- looking Winchester prison, one of the jails in which he was incarcerated due to his desire not to wear clothes in public. Gough has cycled to the meeting point, which he selected. He is clothed in black lycra cycling shorts and an orange T-shirt — the latter of which quickly comes off due to the heat. After spending more than 10 years in prison because of his wish not to wear clothes, the 57-year-old former Marine has taken to dressing in order to be able to be a fulltime carer for his mother, who suffers from dementia.

A CHEEKY tourist posed naked on top of a massive artwork rigged up on the highest mountain in England and Wales.

The brave lad posed starkers standing on the 13ft high mirror installation in the Snowdonia mountains.

The artwork of four giant letters spelling out "EPIC" was put up a tourist board just hours earlier.

Visitors to the valley of Pen y Gwryd, Snowdonia, in North Wales were encouraged to pose in front of the art project and share their pictures on social media using the hashtag #FindYourEpic.

But it wasn't long until pranksters began to share their own ideas of what was 'epic', including the nude rambler who held his arms aloft as if embracing the countryside. The sign is part of Visit Wales' 'Year of Adventure' campaign to encourage tourists to take part in outdoor activities in the Welsh countryside.

when on the beach – a right which our hero ardently supports — Gough has found himself in trouble with the law for wearing too little. Having left the marines, started a family and lived for while on a commune in Canada, he began going about naked, he explains, after he ‘started to question things’. ‘If your mind is a bit curious you start questioning things. Why do people shake hands — what do we do that for? Why do we use phrases like “raining cats and dogs” or “what are you up to”? When you start to take a more objective look at life, you start questioning things’. Out of curiosity he went to a nudist beach. ‘All the people with different shaped bodies – they didn’t seem particularly self-conscious. I thought this is great – why aren’t we like this all the time?’ Pushing the boundaries, he went nude on a beach that was not for naturists. ‘No one seemed to say anything, but when I went into the water, a guy came up to me and growled “pervert” under his breath.’ But, he stresses, there is nothing perverted, or even sexual, in his wish to wear only his birthday suit. ‘It’s a deep thing. It’s not really about nakedness.’

It’s about the innocence that we are. It’s a celebration of what I am and what we are.’ ‘It’s not really about the body. It’s an expression of what I am as a human being – it’s innocent and good. If what I am in a deep sense is good then what I am externally is good too’. People in general, he suggests are confused about the portrayal of the human body. A healthy relationship with your body, he suggests, is ‘indifference’. ‘People who strut their bodies about have a twisted mentality – they’re identifying their body as being who they are.’

A long time ago a girl said to me “I like you cos of your body”. I was insulted by that – that’s not who I am. She missed who I was. I’m not about my body.’ Those who suggest that wearing clothes has something to do with preserving modesty or decency, he says, have missed the point and misunderstand the meaning of the terms. ‘The context in which people use the term immodesty has got mixed up. It’s not related to what I’m doing, but the attitude in which they are doing it.’
