DaveHarries Posted April 2, 2008 Share Posted April 2, 2008 Hi, Having never heard an organ by Forster & Andrews, I was slightly saddened to see that one of their organs has now been obliterated: the church at Radford Semele, Warwickshire was destroyed (except for the tower) by fire in the earliy hours on 16th March 2008. The church is to be rebuilt, however. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/coventr...ire/7299456.stm Organ: Forster & Andrews, 1891 [NPOR N05891] 2 manuals, 9 stops, 478 pipes Also gone, back in December 2007, went the church - and organ - at St. Thomas, Newhey, Greater Manchester. This was an arson, however, and someone is likely to get a custodial sentence for it: he has been found guilty of the offence. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/manchester/7301018.stm Organ: Wordsworth & Maskell, 1876 [NPOR R00610] 2 manuals, 17 stops, 926 pipes Aren't Wordsworth & Maskell a rare maker nowadays?
