A whole garden made out of love:

I have a name that was once common. Such that there was once a Peter Gordon, Writer in Gartmore, who let the farms on the Estate. Here he is in 1806 giving directions to Baad Farm:

  1. Amazing- just entered my name into Google and found a black and white photograph of my Grandparents and father . Would welcome contact from person who posted photo.

    1. Hello Duncan,
      This post on Baad was by me. I came across the photo on the internet – it was in the public domain – but alas I have not kept a record. Forgive me for not attributing the source. I tend to get lost in the poetic aspects of life when putting together my posts. The newspaper articles come from the British Newspaper Archive.

      Kind wishes
      Bridge of Allan

  2. Peter, Many thanks for posting the information about The Baad Farm. Much appreciated

    Duncan Keir
