At risk Organs recently added

 


Royal Sea Bathing Hospital

1888 Henry Willis

     Unique layout     


Chapel of the Royal Sea Bathing Hospital, Margate

Henry Willis 1888

Unusual layout closely integrated into the architecture of the chapel.   In original condition.

Listed Grade I        

The future of the building is uncertain. The layout of the organ is so unusual, integrated into this specific building, that the organ is unsuitable for relocation.  The instrument has been damaged by pigeon droppings but is restorable.

Further details of this organ can be found in record N14623 on the National Pipe Organ Register

Added to the At Risk register September 2016

Important 1856 case


Church of St Andrew the Less, Cambridge

1856

Important organ case, a product of the Sutton-Pugin circle.

Listed Grade II        

The church has not been used for some while and the building is listed on the Historic England Heritage at Risk Register. Alternative uses under consideration would be likely to affect the organ and the fine organ case, designed in 1856 by the Revd J.Gibson. 

Further details of this organ can be found in record N05165 on the National Pipe Organ Register

1904 Hill & Son

Mansfield College Chapel

Oxford

W.G.Vowles 1890


St Catherine, Pontypridd, Glamorgan

A fine Hill & Son organ of 1904. A product of one of the most highly respected organ builders of the period.  

Unaltered except for Choir Larigot replacing Clarinet (pipes stored in organ)

The organ was declared at risk because it is understood that there is a need to remove the organ for repairs to the building, and there are proposals that the instrument might not be reinstated in the church. The case is currently in front of the Consistory Court.

Further details of this organ can be found in record P00311 on the National Pipe Organ Register
