More recently (March 2009) an organ builder took a look at the instrument and advised that he could rebuild it to a working standard for about half of this amount. We are currently looking for monies to support such a rebuild. As a result some initial cleaning work has been undertaken but this project is currently on hold
The picture here is of a young student of music practising at the manuals. You can see here that it is a two manual instrument with a relatively small number of stops. None the less those parts of the organ that do work sound wonderful.
Following a recent review with the Churches Conservation Trust and its advisors we are very pleased to say that we have their full support in our aim of restoring the organ to a working state within the guidlines of the TCCT. So if there is a benefactor viewing this who would like to support this project please contact us.
