dc.descriptionBiographical interview with Sophie Weatherall (aged 85) about her association with Moat Brae, which dates to the time when it was a private hospital and nursing home. Sophie explains that she was on the Board of Trustees for Moat Brae, along with a few other individuals and senior medical practitioners. This was because she had invested in Moat Brae in anticipation of needing to move there when she was older. She had also been there as a private patient when the hospital carried out routine operations for conditions such as appendicitis. Sophie recalled the interior layout of the hospital and said that it had been rather sad to watch the decline of the building and grounds towards the end. She didn't remember the details around the closure but said it had been a muddle. She'd also been rather annoyed that a statue of Peter Pan, which she'd commissioned on behalf of a lady who had died in the home, had disappeared. The interviewer noted that a statue had been found and hoped it might be the same one.
