Moatbrae House, Dumfries

This film is about Moatbrae House, Dumfries: the house and garden that inspired J M Barrie to write Peter Pan. It has been restored as a story-telling centre.

Moatbrae was the family home of Barrie’s school friend, Stewart Gordon. The patriarch was Henry Gordon.

This family are not related to mine but uncannily my father is called Stuart Gordon and my grandfather Henry Gordon.

This film is actually for my mother: a most selfless woman, who is kind, loving and who knows how to play with children. My mother is adored by all her children and grandchildren.
