The Organ

The church has a fine organ which was originally built in 1878 by the well known Sheffield firm of organ builders Brindley and Foster, with work being done in 1948 by T.C. Wilcock of Albert Road, Sheffield.

In 1973 major work was carried out by Percy Daniel of Clevedon, the console being replaced with one with new manuals and tab-type stops. While the key and stop action are both electric, slider chests are used for much of the organ though some ranks were added at the time of the rebuild and are on direct electric action.

An unusual feature of the organ is that there are two swell boxes each with its own balanced swell pedal, one for the flues and a separate box for the reeds. The organ has a combination action giving 5 presets to each manual, which are duplicated with toe studs. The combinations can be easily changed by means of a matrix of miniature switches.

The organ is registered with the National Pipe Organ Register, NPOR N01066.

Organ Console

The organ plays reasonably well but is in need of some restoration in order to keep it in good working condition. The required maintenance will cost around £20,000. A fund has been set up and fundraising activities are currently under way to raise the required sum. However, donations are always welcome.
