Sandi handy for the randy; ITV hit's scenes hotspot beaches filmed at dogging.

Byline: Scarlet Howes EXCLUSIVE

THE sweeping sands and rugged cliffs of the pretty seaside town seem perfect for the latest genteel ITV period drama.

Millions who switched on Sanditon, dubbed the new Downton Abbey, were charmed by the idyllic setting.

But others are turned on by more physical activity in Clevedon, where the eight-part drama was filmed.

The resort has become notorious for outdoor sex.

LAP The secluded cliffs, coves and beaches in Somerset that feature in the adaptation of the unfinished Jane Austen novel are a magnet for doggers as well as nudists.

Last week 3.6 million viewers saw spirited Charlotte Heywood, played by Rose Williams, arrive in the wannabe seaside resort of Sanditon in the first episode.

There was some nudity as male characters, including Tom Parker played by Kris Marshall, went skinny dipping in the sea.

But locals are no strangers to seeing naked bottoms at the beauty spot as couples having sex have been disturbed by dog walkers.

A coastal path, leading to Ladye Bay, has been advertised as a "pick-up point" for men wanting nookie.

There have even reports of pieces of carpet and porn mags being found in some areas of woodland.

One local said: "The scenery is beautiful but some of the goings on here are a bit cheeky, to say the least."

Sanditon is also filmed in Westonsuper-Mare, on a beach directly below the kinky spot of Bleadon Hill. Sex website Swinging Heaven gave very specific tips about a layby, stating: "Left hand side very open but lots of activity in the after dark hours."

While another site says: "Good action goes on in the sand along the pier."

Nearby National Trust site Sand Point is a third location for the cameras and equally popular for doggers.

A married PC was fired for joining a couple in a three-way sex session while on patrol at the notorious site. And there's even been reports of a res "passion wagon" that offers "discreet discretion" to clients. Further along the coast windswept Brean Beach, which features in Sanditon, makes it on swinging site Fab Swingers.

One local posted: "The beach is 4 miles long, you can usually find somewhere quiet. I've seen plenty of topless couples there. My brother often disappears into the dunes with his wife."

g y " Another replied: "In the dunes you can get what you require. Watch police not in uniform to stop flashers so keep in the dunes."

It's not the first time a TV location has been plagued by doggers.

dune no locatio do P en Poldark, which has just ended, attracted people seeking outdoor sex. One couple advertised on a sex site for others to join them for romps on the Cornish coast.
