Where do we start? Well, our Great-Uncle William (Selkirk) is quoted in 1899 as saying: “Drop in and see me when I get back from Spain. Good‑day!”. But he was (as far as we know) concentrating in North-West Spain. (See

The first contact we have of our part of the world is that beside: Duncan, aged 19, on a field trip when at Keele University.

In reality, though, we dropped into the area at the suggestion of our friends Mike & Di Kaiser (who live incidentally in what was Frank’s parents home around 1980). It was in 1999 that we went to stay with joint (formerly of Broseley) friends Mike & Sheila Picken who were (and he still is) living in Bedar. (Sheila died suddenly in November 2014)
