Does anyone know what became of it? I know the Panopticon became a theatre, which then got knocked down to make way for the Odeon with its famous Compton, and NPOR says that it moved to the Victoria Rooms in Bristol via St. Paul's Cathedral, while the main organ was being rebuilt, but it also says that it was replaced by a tiny Peter Collins... I presume that the Hill has been destroyed.

It went to St Paul's and sat in the South Transept from 1860-1873, then went to the Victoria Rooms Clifton and was broken up in 1900 (info from pp88 & 93 of A History of the Organs of St Pauls Plumley/Niland 2001).
