Vox Humana Posted December 3, 2006 Share Posted December 3, 2006 In days of yore, one of the finer organs in Plymouth was a decent-sized, post-war, three-manual Nicholson in King Street (later Wesley) Methodist Church. It did make quite a fine sound. The church closed maybe five or six years ago and it was feared that the organ would be scrapped, but at the eleventh hour it was bought by Topsham parish church up on the Exe Estuary. Off it was shipped and everyone heaved a sigh of relief. An organ saved. Or was it? To my horror, I have just learnt that it has never been installed. Apparently it is still lying in thousands of pieces in the Topsham's south transept. The organist there is reported as saying that the church (whose current organ is said to be quite nice) has lost interest in raising the money needed for its installation.
