Royal Sea Bathing Hospital

     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
