Colin Richell Posted February 4, 2010 Share Posted February 4, 2010 I read in an edition of "Weekly News" the following article ; A church is fighting to save one of the country's oldest Victorian organs. Bank Street Chapel in Bolton, Lancs, needs £10,000 to complete a major overhaul of the 130 year old instrument's worn out parts. So far, half has been raised for the organ, which was bought by the Church for £140 in 1877, but it's future will only be secured when fund raising is complete. It's an impressive organ and wil sound great when fully restored said Minister Stephen Lingwood. Does anyone know about this, and who the organ builder was,and whether it really is one of the oldest organs in the country? Colin Richell.
