The fine 1913 Norman & Beard three manual, which actually incorporates an earlier organ by Bedwell, has been rebuilt and enlarged.

The work was necessary because of the need to move the detached console to allow the creation of a rather nice room within the church. This necessitated the disturbance of the pneumatic tubing and it was wisely decided to accept our proposal to convert to a solid state action using "MultiSystem"
from SSLL.

The console has been grandiosely resited behind the choir stalls and the piston system uprated to a ten level system but with the only additional pistons visible on the console being the generals, set and general cancel; remaining new piston gadgetry, and also the blower switch, are hidden behind a tiny oak cupboard door let into the return of the stop jamb.

Tonally we have restored open diapason no 1 to the great (removed by HN & B a decade ago in favour of a fifteenth, also retained), placed the Lieblich bourdon (always great & pedal) onto a unit chest and borrowed it also as a much needed third manual 8ft Lieblich flute. Norman & Beard had christened this manual orchestral, which it remains. Also now added is the new Trumpet/Trombone rank, with pipes by Booth & Son of Leeds; all tonally finished by Richard Bower. Whilst the couplers  now "play through", the feature of separate swell octave to great and swell suboctave to great have been retained.
