Barrel Organs in English Parish Churches
Barrel organ by an unknown builder, installed when the church was rebuilt following storm damage in 1841-2. The organ was moved to its present location below the gallery in 1965, is operated from the rear and blown by pedal. The Gothic case is painted dark red and gold to match the west gallery in which it was originally located, and has three panels of gold painted dummy pipes backed with gold cloth. Repaired by John Budgen in 1965. Originally 2 barrels x 10 tunes corresponding with the handwritten list pasted to the casework, but barrel 1 is now missing.
