Ex-British Soldier Now Works as a Naked Carpenter

‘I’m always careful not to get splinters’: Ex-soldier, 42, now works as a NAKED carpenter
  • Robert Jenner regularly renovates his Kent home in nothing but his boots
  • The naturist, 42, is ‘not a bad-looking chap’ according to some neighbours
  • However others have complained to the police, leaving him with an ASBO
A carpenter claims he likes to feel the breeze while hammering his wood – in nothing but his work boots.

Naturist Robert Jenner works as a carpenter and is ‘not a bad-looking chap’, according to neighbours who regularly see him renovating his home.

The 42-year-old is always careful when using power tools ‘in case of splinters’ and he says he likes the sense of freedom and liberation that naturism brings.


But the former soldier is concerned he may now have to give up his naked passion because neighbours have started noticing.

He said: ‘My mum has no idea I’m a naturist and she only lives a few miles down the road so she’ll probably find out sooner or later.

‘Whenever I’m using power tools I’m always clothed, I’m always careful because I don’t want to get any splinters.

‘Naturism appeals to me due to the sense of freedom and liberation. I also don’t want to get beaten up and no one is going to hit someone who’s naked.’

Earlier this month Rob was handed an ASBO after several ‘outraged’ neighbours in Snodland, Kent, reported him for his lack of clothing.

After two visits from police who ‘found the funny side’, residents called again last week and this time arrested him while he was fixing a tap.

On Saturday he was charged with using threatening words or behaviour and is due to appear at Sevenoaks Magistrates’ Court next month.

The chippy, who was given an ASBO, said: ‘There was a few complaints made the police came and did not really mind the first time, they saw the funny side.

The third time they came they arrested me for indecent exposure. It’s just so stupid. When they arrested me I was naked and fixing a tap, thankfully it didn’t spring a leak.
‘I don’t care what my neighbours think but the people who complained are always smiling at me.
‘A few hours before they arrested me they were smiling and waving and one mum put her hands over her daughter’s eyes, but she was still grinning.’

Since his arrest Rob has written a sign outside his £169,000 home which reads: ‘A naturist is working on this property, please do not take offence.’

A neighbour said: ‘He’s owned the house for at least a decade and rents the place out. We’ve always known he’s a naturist but it’s gone too far.

It’s the fact there’s young families in the street, you tell your children to keep their clothes on and then they see something like that.

Another resident said: ‘I’ve got a husband, sons and grandchildren so maybe that’s why it doesn’t shock me so much. Plus he’s not a bad looking chap.’

  4. Great story. I have a lot of respect for those serve. Perhaps I am a little more open minded than I should be but the people complaining might want to think about what he has worn in the past.
