Barrel Organs in English Parish Churches
Barrel & finger organ by J.W. Walker. Originally from Monkton Farleigh rectory, Wiltshire, it was sold to a church or private individual in Wainfleet (Lincs), then to Stamford Masonic Temple. It was purchased c.1986 from the collection of Norman Vince of Bawdeswell for use at Tittleshall while the main organ was unuseable. The organ stands in the south aisle and is operated from the front. The oak case has five panels of gold painted dummy pipes. One very long barrel, all chants.
