Moat Brae, a Georgian villa dating back to 1823, is home to the terraced gardens that are said to have inspired J M Barrie’s classic children’s story about the free-spirited boy who never grew up.
Today, the complex plays host to a children’s centre, operated by the Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust, dedicated to literature and storytelling that is expected to attract more than 250,000 visitors per year.
The Neverland-style complex, features exhibition space, reading and play areas, a shop, a cafe and rooms available to hire for special events. A performance space has also been created in the garden, alongside a pirate ship, Lost Boy’s treehouse and mermaid’s lagoon.
There is also an attic recreation of the Darling children’s nursery, where visitors can attempt to catch Peter Pan’s shadow, or crawl through Nana’s kennel into a play theatre.
Specialist flooring and screeding contractor IFT, which has offices in both East Kilbride and Bishop Auckland, and works with clients across Scotland and the North of England, installed 280 square metres of Vebro Polymers’ liquid-vinyl polyurethane comfort flooring system in Dusty Grey across a large sweeping atrium positioned at the entrance of the new centre.
vebroflex Comfort UV has been engineered to offer all of the performance benefits of durable, hygienic and easy to clean seamless resin flooring systems, but with the look, feel and comfort of vinyl.
