Database Manager on July 28, 2014:

Updated through online information from richard alexander. -- Great also has an unenclosed Octave 4, original to installation. Gallery rail 8' and 2' (on Great) can also play on manual II via separate coupler tablets. On death of GDH, Whiteford entrusted the immaculate tonal finishing to William Watkins, consultant and by then Director of Music at the church. A truly amazing and versatile little organ; original stuff remains, with unfortunate later additions that all who know this organ hope will be discarded. A real gem!
