The Brindley and Fosters Organ

THE BRINDLEY AND FOSTERS ORGAN

Situated at the north of the Church to the left of the chancel is our magnificent organ. Installed in 1873, it was made by Messrs Brindley and Fosters, Organ Builders of Sheffield and cost approximately £1,300. The quality of workmanship on this organ is outstanding, with huge pipes and wood carvings. The bellows were originally powered by steam but still needed the assistance of a blower. An electric motor now drives the air pump. The sound of the organ fills the whole of the church during our services.
