Cound, St Peter’s

2020: part restoration of the two-manual organ, including new case panels, 17 stops.

The organ had a partial restoration. All pipes were cleaned, regulated and fitted with new tuning slides. Both Swell and Great soundboards, together with the mechanical drawstop action were fully restored. The bass octave pedal Bourdon chest was fully overhauled and the treble chest modified to improve access. The case was stripped and re-polished. A new oak central panel, and kneeboard were constructed and a new pierced oak panel installed at the treble end.
