David, you have rather confirmed my suspicions. I was looking to see if the local electricity distributor (whatever it happens to be called today) carries reports of issues on its website.
It is SSE Power Distribution and messages have been posted on the Twitter feed (the author of which has signed of for the night):

It was posted an hour ago that the majority of homes in Haslemere that lost power now have it back.
