Services Needed-Carpenter / Joiner

We are looking for a legal, fully-skilled and time-served. carpenter/joiner to supply and install and external ‘Spanish-style’ rustic back door and casing. In other words, a proper tradesperson. There may also be a little masonry work necessary to make good, once that the old back door is removed.

It is essential that we can see photographs on the different styles available in order that we can make a clear choice. We don’t want to waste the time of someone who simply describes their ideas of what we can have, and/or does a rough drawing on a bar napkin.

More than happy to invite tradesmen who only speak Spanish – as we both do also.

Finally, thanks to Jane for her sterling efforts on running this community publication.

Thank you

Hello all. I wonder if anyone could help us?

We are moving to Torrox in May, and would like to know how easy/difficult it would be to build a small plunge pool in top of a twin house.

What’s on- The Secret Language of Sacred spaces

Religious architecture of the world

A fully illustrated lecture in English by Jon Cannon

Sponsored by  Dr Rik Heymans, Nerja

From Chartres cathedral to Angkor Wat, religion has been the inspiration for many of the greatest buildings of the world. Indeed, for much of human history, the story of architecture and the story of faith were synonymous.

This lecture explains the architecture of each of the major faith traditions, revealing how it is shaped by their rituals and beliefs. It briefly covers the sacred architecture of such early societies as Mesopotamia, Egypt and the Americas before focusing on the living faiths: the great continuities embodied in the sacred architecture of Buddhism and Hinduism, and the revolutionary changes brought about in monotheistic Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It thus brings fresh insights into some of the most remarkable buildings on the planet.

The aim is to leave the audience understanding why and how (for example) a mosque is different from a synagogue or a church (and how they interrelate), as well as having a ‘big picture’ overview of what is happening where and when in the sacred buildings of planet earth.

It should go without saying that the illustrations cover a sequence of the greatest buildings on the planet. Many are taken from my sumptuous book on the subject

About Jon Cannon

“I have a vocation, and it’s to do with places; with communicating, enthusing, analyzing – in short, extolling – about the nature of ‘old places’, and what makes them tick. I get especially excited about the sacredness of place, and the human place-making that results from it: a po-faced way of saying I love religious architecture in particular. English medieval churches are my academic specialism.

In any case, this a calling without a career structure. Writing lies at the heart of it, but like many writers I do other things which help earn a living and which arise from the expertise I’ve gathered on the way. But these, for me, are not add-ons: lecturing, teaching and tour-leading, copywriting and editing for heritage organizations, academic research: all are essential elements in what is a seamless and overlapping range of concerns. You can find out more about each, or contact me direct, via this website.

You might, indeed, come across my books, such as Cathedral: the great English cathedrals and the world that made them, published by Constable in 2007 and now out in paperback; or The Secret Language of Sacred Spaces, was published in late 2013; the Shire book of Medieval Church Architecture came out in July 2014; I am currently writing a major work on the British landscape, slated for publication in 2016. You might also have come across my BBCTV documentary, How to Build a Cathedral, which was widely praised.

Among other things, I teach regularly at the University of Bristol (mainly in the History of Art department), lead tours for Martin Randall Travel and others; am a Lay Canon (keeper of the fabric) at Bristol cathedral, and am a Member of Council for the British Archaeological Association. I am also an accredited NADFAS lecturer. My piece of journalism about North Korea (east Asia plays a big part in my life: my wife is the Chinese author Liu Hong) for the London Review of Books some years ago was shortlisted for the David Watt Memorial Prize.”
