This is a lovely Organ. After restoration in 2003 and enhancement of the case decoration it is a good working example of what must be one of the last tracker organs to be built pre Organ Reform Movement.

The Swell Oboe was revoiced during the restoration in 2003 to increase its volume. This Organ makes a big sound within the building and The Pipe Organ preservation Company done a fantastic job in their Restoration work.

But Sadly there is no resident Organist in this Church anymore, and last time I played this Organ at a Funeral it was badly out of fune and starting to gather dust which is a shame!
