Islip Methodist Church Organ

After this church closed the organ was acquired by the Parochial Church Council of nearby Oddington and I rebuilt it in St. Andrew’s Church. The Organ appears to have been built by the Positive Organ Company in the early 20th century as a house organ with an automatic player mechanism. As it stood in the former Islip Methodist Church (Church Lane, and now a house) the organ had been converted to electric action and a 25 note radiating and concave pedalboard had been fitted. The organ has an elaborate mahogany case and dummy spotted metal front pipes. Now at Oddington, I have substantially rebuilt it to provide a basic one manual instrument with mainly mechanical action. The stops are 8 8 4 2
