The specification document in the database for this instrument gives the following builders:

Steer and Turner, 1869 Hall Organ Company, 1907 and 1939 Lindsey and Scott, 1991 with new pipework by John Anderson 3 manuals, 58 ranks

Not clear why the database lists this instrument as Aeolian-Skinner, with 61 ranks. I could not find a maker's plate on the console.
