Rebuilt by Bower & Company 2010 this fine free standing organ has a pedigree of Norman & Beard 1913, Hill Norman & Beard 1964 and contains parts and pipework from the previous Hill organ of 1875.

Our renovation has included cleaning, overhaul, releathering and the fitting of the Musicom PipeNet transmission system.

Our rebuilding 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 has been increased to 61 notes throughout (the 1961 console having had 61 note keyboards with only 56 notes in use). Winding has been revised to give pressures of 4”, 4 ½” 6”, 7” and a new internal blower boosts this to 15” for the magnificent Tuba.


The Opening Recital was by Adrian Lucas and the series included Thomas Trotter.
