Detached, normally at east end of south aisle (~25 metres away from the organ) but with ability to relocate to the centre of the crossing for concert use.
Positioned towards the east end of south aisle, free-standing. The casework provides little more than an overall frame for the instrument. The swell is placed the rear of the great and slightly higher allowing the pipe work to be visible through the glass shutters.
Stop type: tab
Pedalboard: concave radiating.
