Database Manager on November 02, 2007:

Updated through on-line information from Devin Johnstone. -- I was Minister of CE & Music at West Lane from 1997 - 2001. I know the write up about their organ says that the instrument is 'encased with mute facade pipes'. In fact, there are no facade pipes, and there is no visible pipe work on this organ (there never has been). The entire instrument is under expression, and is located in a chamber fairly high in the choir loft.
