Does anyone know about the new organ here, replacing the Copeman Hart? Just received a forwarded tweet with a picture of a very attractive terraced console, but no mention of the builder.

Didn't the 'Copeman Hart' have a terraced console? I seem to remember a picture of the console, in a gallery, looking down towards the high altar and a lot being made of the fact that the organist could see over the top of the console at the unfolding liturgy.

There is also a nice little one manual chamber organ dating from about 1772 and, partially, restored by our hosts in 2010.

Obviously not.

Many thanks for the 'facebook' link. Excellent pictures of before and after. And the link brought back quite a few memories of the 'High' church of England that some of us, living where we do, dearly miss!!!
