This 1990 rebuild incorporates pipework from a previous (1859) organ by J W Walker & Sons.  It occupies a position in the South Chancel aisle.  The inaugural recital was given by former BOA President Andrew Fletcher, and current BOA President Paul Carr gave a concert here last April.

One rather unusual feature is the incorporation of two expression pedals (see right photo) for the single swell box: one controls shutters facing the transept while the other controls shutters facing the chancel.

It has recently been cleaned and the keys recovered.
