An explanatory text written by Ian Major in part states :-

"This is a strange and most unusual little organ, not to say unique!

It has all the signs of an amateur builder using spare or second-hand parts ...

With only five stops, no congregational-accompanying Principals and an incomplete Bourdon of only twelve pipes for a 'straight' Pedal organ of some twenty-five keys, it is difficult to play any of the standard repertoire on it ...

The Case of the instrument bears the date 1887 and I believe a former incumbent was a bit of a craftsman (? Rev. Townsend) - a screen and carved pews - so perhaps this is some of the answer to the organ!?"
