Vintage looms restored and operating at Brough House

From the Maitland Mercury report:
Two vintage weaving looms that were passed down through generations of East Maitland’s Petherbridge family, have been lovingly restored and are now in full operation at Brough House, Maitland.
It was by chance that Maitland’s Grossmann House acquired the looms after the National Trust approved their acquisition as part of the Grossmann House Collection.
One of the looms was disassembled but both had been lovingly passed down through the weavers of the Petherbridge family.
