History of the Church

The Makin Organ

The Makin Organ fills most of the space in the South Transept. Whilst the Walker organ is out of commission and is being restored, we are using this instead. Behind the organ all the altar rails are stored when thay are not being used. As in the chancel, in here there is another piscina to allow the monks or clery to wash their hands.

The door in the south transept

Unusual for a church like this, the south transept has a door. This was to allow the Monks from Ashridge to enter straight into the top end of the church and to avoid the other people who would be using the corn exchange and market.

The director of Music at the Organ The organist playing the makin organ. Unlike the walker organ, this console has a TV screen so that the organist can see the choir.
Covenants to the Church

On the walls therre are three large plaques, whose age make them now hard to read. They list coventents to the church , published so that all can read them.
