The May 1963 edition of Health & Efficiency carried an article about the formation of a “New Club in the Yeovil/Dorchester/Taunton area.” This group of five
couples were members of the B.S.B.A. (British Sun Bathing Association which was later to merge with the FBSC, Federation of British Sun Clubs, to form CCBN, the Central Council for British
Naturism) The as yet un-named group did not have a name or a site of its own, but arranged visits to other landed clubs in the west.
By the October 1964 edition of H&E the group had taken the title of South Western Outdoor Club and found a site which had yet to cleared to provide the
wonderful facilities that we enjoy today
