The Organ

The organ is relatively new. Bought in 1871, it first stood in the chancel, then in the south chapel, and reached its present position only in 1955. Before the organ was acquired, music was provided by violins and wind instruments (in 1752, 4 shillings were spent on a pitch pipe for the parish clerk to lead the psalms; in 1851, 10 shillings were spent on violin strings) and briefly by a harmonium.
