A view of the organ from the crossing

The Wald Flute was one of the first English experiments with inverted mouths. This stop was refined by Walker, who placed it on the Great division. Walker's Wald Flutes are considered by many to be the finest stops of their kind.

The console is 4 and a half octaves - shorter than many. The Choir is not coupled to any stops.

The organ is being restored at present.

The rear of the organ loft shows some of the pipes of this great machine.

The organist needs all the help they can get and the mirrors up at the console make life slightly easier for the organist to see from this lofty position.
