Organ pipes as viewed from the Nave

The organ was manufactured by Wilkinson’s of Kendal. For a number of years the organ and choir were housed in a gallery over the west door (photos exist showing the exact location). The organ was moved in 1860 when the North Aisle was constructed (see photograph on History page). The pipes from the original organ were very valuable, a gift from the Earl and Countess of Derby. Sadly, when the organ was moved a second time to its present location, these original pipes were not included in the design. The current organ console and electronic action are recent additions to the organ.
