10. The Organ
Image of organ
The present organ was installed in 1978 from the redundant church of St. Edmund in Northampton. It was manufactured in 1886 by Hill of London

The previous "Pomfret Organ" was damaged by fire in 1976 and remains in the Victoria & Albert museum awaiting sufficient allocation of funds to permit its restoration. It was a highly ornamented piece of woodwork and was given by the Earl of Pomfret in 1817, and was originally in William Beckford's Fonthill Abbey.
