This organ is located in the diocese or region of St Michael & All Angels, Highworth, Swindon . The original builder was Henry Williams 1862 and the last known carer was John Coulson. The swell action is rather heavy, but the church has been advised that it would be possible to improve the playing experience overall, and the organ would benefit from tonal regulation, as well as attention to the pedal organ. .The organ was first listed by the IBO on 2017-10-11.

Detail : The organ was built in 1862 by Henry Williams of Cheltenham (formerly of Gray & Davison) and has been relocated twice from its original position in the church in accordance with the liturgical and musical fashion of the time. One move was made by Harrison & Harrison in 1908 within a side chapel of the chancel , the final one by John Coulson in 1974. The work is described as solid and competent, and originally a worthy effort by a local firm. The pipework is mature and there are many very pleasing soft sounds. Heard from the front it gives a vigorous impression, but its location in the North Transept means that the congregation hears the sound indirectly.
