Guest Hector5 Posted June 27, 2012 Share Posted June 27, 2012 The London County Asylum Hospital at Stone, Dartford, closed a few years ago and is going to be re-developed soon. There is a fine 3m Norman and Beard instrument available to anyone who can rescue it. It is in beautiful condition, nice casework and has really been looked after and appreciated. It falls under my remit as DOA, despite having been made redundant, and the current owners are trying to be extremely respectful to all fixtures and fittings of this large chapel. No wanton bulldozing here, just a desire to ensure that the organ goes to a good home. There is no power to the chapel now and it is not possible to try the organ - although power could be laid on; at cost, of course. Could any interested parties please get in touch with me in the first instance. I have a sheet with a photo of the console and also the stoplist. I will put you then in touch with the developers who will arrange access. I am trying to advertise the organ in various areas and also trying to ensure that it remains in this country if at all possible. While I have never heard the organ (the chapel closed before I was DOA), rumour has it that it is a fine instrument. PM me for further information.
