Welcome to

Cortijo la Cerradilla

In November 2000 Sheena & Frank found (with some help!) this small farmstead and agreed after a little negotiation to purchase. The land area originally for sale had been just too much for us, and the price slightly above budget.  Transfer was completed in February 2001.

The major alteration and rebuild is shown on the separate pages.  This was master-minded and largely worked on by John & Stacey Dene.

Various others of various nationalities and backgrounds worked on, caretook and generally  looked after it with various degrees of success from 2003 until we came to live here permanently in 2007.

There are many hundreds  of photographs awaiting sorting, editing and thinning for inclusion in the site. And more to write about!

More to come.. (The task for the winter of 2015/16 is to sort and - where desirable - scan many hundreds of photographs, slides and negatives!}
