Jeff Scofield on September 23, 2020:

The organ was originally installed entirely in a rather small chamber to the right of the chancel, covered by grille and cloth; in 1981 the organ was rebuilt and the Great was moved to the front wall to each side of the chancel window, with more exposed pipework in the chamber opening.
