‘Yorkshire’ Dales Winton

by | 5th, August 2003

‘WITH nothing else for it, Brits are using their own two feet to get around. Some are even doing it in the nude, in a practice known as ‘boots-only-hiking’.

Some ramblers didn’t bother to bring ski poles

But not everyone is a fan, and the Telegraph hears that locals in the Yorkshire Dales have been complaining at the sight of naked ramblers, and one in particular.

Police are on the lookout for a man with an all-over suntan, a floppy hat, hiking boots, socks, who has been carrying a rucksack with a white flag on top.

This man has already made himself know to a married woman on a canal tow-path, bidding her ‘good morning’ without so much as breaking his stride.

It’s nothing short of a scandal. As a local copper says: ‘It can be quite startling and upsetting to a lot of people.’

Police are already preparing a line up for the nude rambler’s eventual apprehension, and have called in look-alikes Robert Kilroy-Silk, David Dickinson, Dale Winton, Grant Bovey and Des O’Connor to help.
