This original "Father" Willis organ was a smaller instrument of 40 stops, with the console at ground level and the case lower inside the arch of the organ chamber. It had tracker action and was blown by hand. In 1908, a blowing chamber was built to the right of the console comprising electric motors, feeds and heavy pressure double rise bellows.
Willis & Sons undertook a much-needed rebuild in 1937, at which time the whole organ (including the console) was raised so that it now completly fills the vertical space of the chamber's arch.
