Detail : We would very much like this organ to have a new home. It has served us well down the years but it has now been made redundant. No charge will be made for the organ, (the organ pipes, case including the facade of large zinc parts and console). We would look for the recipient to be responsible for all costs involving dismantling and removal. 1) Ideally we would seek it to be relocated as a whole instrument directly off the site. 2) If that is not achievable, we would want someone (eg an individual or an organ redundancy company) to remove it and store it for a future owner to be found. 3) If that proves impossible then it would be available for re-use of its parts.
