The pipes of the Chancel organ 4ft. Nason flute are thought to be more than 200 years old and to be of German origin. They have carved stoppers. The Swell 8ft. Trumpet and the Great 8ft. Diapason were both revoiced in 1947 by the celebrated reed voicer W C (Billy) Jones who died in 1967 aged 92. They remain among the chief glories of the instrument to this day.
