A project for 2009 -
We are currently restoring the original parts From St Peters, which were transferred to St Brides Church, Old Trafford, in 1907. To be installed in St Catherines Priory Church, Lincoln.
The original Swell, Great and Pedal will be used along with a choir organ, from our stock of Jardine pipework, The Casework will be constructed from one rescued, from St Edmunds Church, Whalley Range, Manchester.
1856 Kirtland & Jardine soundboard under restoration.
We have also been commissioned to carry remedial works to -
St Mary and Michaels Church, Garstang.
St Lawrences Church, Denton, Manchester.
Croston Methodist Church
Manchester Rd Methodist Church, Swinton.
We also have three teams available for our extensive tuning round of over 300 pipe organs, within 180 mile radius, for which no formal contract is required. Tuning and maintenance is carried out at regular quarterly intervals, or as required.
We try to group tuning visits together, to reduce travel and lodging costs, as an example, we work out of Keswick for 4 weeks of the year, working on the organ in Crosthwaite Church and many others in the Lake District.
