PUPILS in Alhaurin el Grande are to learn about the famous British expat Gerald Brenan.

Year three pupils are to study the writer who lived in the town for nearly two decades

Brenan, who wrote famous books The Spanish Labyrinth about the civil war and South from Granada, spent much of his life in Spain and donated all his works to the Gerald Brenan Foundation, in Alhaurin, in 1984.

The students will study his work as well as 5,000 books from his personal library.

He died of cancer in 1987 at the age of 92.

A street is named after him in the town and a blue plaque sits on his house on the road to Malaga in an area called La Chichara.
