Now and Then Posted September 19, 2017 Share Posted September 19, 2017 Greetings folks, this is my very first post as a new member.Lewis At St. Alban Teddington - Pre Vandal Destruction Do members have any first-hand experience of this sad instrument, please? I played it just once in 1963 but can't recall the experience except to say that I remember there wasn't a case, so building frame, chests and pipework were laid bare. Furthermore, I recall bee's buzzing around the console, because they had made nests in the bricked-up unfinished west wall. The Willis 3 console - if my memory serves me well - occupied a space in the western-end of the south nave aisle. The instrument was located in the eastern end of the north nave aisle. So presumably was moved from its pre-war north chancel position, perhaps post WWW2. Overall though, a sense of being unloved and unfinished of church building and organ was felt. Please share your memories. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
