An early 19th Century Scottish Chamber Organ - removed, restored and repatriated (2019-2021)

In October 2019 I took out a Scottish chamber organ from Athelhampton House in Dorset on behalf of a client - all done in one day from a ‘minstrels gallery’! (above l & r)

During the Covid spring and summer of 2020 various bits of restoration were carried out - most notably a complete releathering of the wind system and minor repairs to the the rather delicate Gothick decorations on the the case.

Finally, in June 2021 the organ was packed up for a 500-mile journey to Aberdeenshire to its new home. The organ was installed in St Margaret’s Church, Braemar, where it nicely complements the architecture and style of Sir Ninian Comper.
