Rebuilt by Bower & Company 2010 this fine free standing organ

the fitting of the Musicom PipeNet transmission system.
has included the backward extension of the case at first floor level
to carry the addition of the Sub Bourdon 32 and the Tuba (both acquired
from the redundant organ of Haileybury College). Tonal enhancement in
the swell added the swell Bassoon 16 and two more ranks to the Mixture;
on the great the addition of a Tierce 1 3/5 and the extension of the
Trumpet to Clarion, on the Choir the revision of the flutes by the provision
of a Byfield Stopped Diapason 8ft (from Eye) and the substitution of
the 4ft Flute with the old 8ft Gedact transposed; (the Hill wooden 4ft
stop removed has been stored in the parish).
On the pedal has been the revision of the chorus and the provision
of the pedal Mixture IV as well as the 32ft addition. Manual compass

to give pressures of 4”, 4 ½” 6”, 7” and a new internal blower boosts
this to 15” for the magnificent Tuba.
