Updated by Larry Beardsley, who has heard or played the organ.

A new blower was installed in 2018 to replace a blower in the church belfry. The organ is in good condition with occasional cyphers, mainly in the 16\' Bourdon. It is tuned regularly and a project to restore the original motif on the face pipes is being planned.
