The organ is undergoing some very exciting restoration currently. In October 2015 all of the pipes of the Solo Division were returned to the organ afyer work to clean, repair and regulate the pipework. In July 2016, the Choir Organ was restored (see Organ Restoration 2) and in November 2017, there were Winding works (see Restoration 3).
You can see below some photographs of the work in progress.
The work is being undertaken by the Duplex Pipe Organ and Blower Company and their Director James Richardson-Jones.
Pipes are packed up to go to the workshop for cleaning, repairs and voicing

The upperboards and rack boards are cleaned and refitted - these will support the pipes
