The new  Pedalboard

The pedalboard has been restored. The whole board has been raised up by 2-3 cm and some of the weak pedals have been replaced. This has had a knock on effect that the organ stool has been raised, although at present it is still sitting on two temporary blocks of wood.

 

The great and swell stop mechanism is being overhauled. Temporarily because the stop will not work the are locked in the open position by a wedge of wood.

 

The front pipes are next in line to be cleaned and tuned. There are some 1168 pipes altogether on the organ. Each needs tuning individually.
