I found your blog while searching for information on Hattersley looms. Believe it or not, there are 3 working looms here in Otago, and they will be coming in September to Oamaru (where I live) and will be housed in our Historic Precinct where there are a number of traditional craftspersons. I am a fiber artist and dyer, and a friend of the woman who will be taking over custodianship of the looms. Obviously, we cannot produce Harris Tweed here, but it is intended that the looms will continue to weave fabric such as modern tartans. http://firstname.lastname@example.org PS I have a fondness for lighthouses, as my grandmother was raised on one.
