Making Plans for Moat Brae

from the Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust
Dear Commonty

Moat Brae is the birthplace of Peter Pan, the ‘enchanted land’ where JM Barrie played pirate games as child. It is a beautiful Georgian house on George Street, Dumfries with a garden that slopes down to the River Nith. The house was due to be demolished in 2009, but was saved by the Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust. The Trust is now transforming the property into a major attraction celebrating children’s literature. More info on the house, the garden and the project can be found at the Trust's website:

Now the Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust are carrying out some research into what people would like to see happening at Moat Brae. The responses will help shape the project and strengthen the bids for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Creative Scotland.
Please help us plan the next chapter in Moat Brae's remarkable story by sparing a few minutes to answer some questions at (Survey closes 31/12/13.)
