Pipe Cleaning

A great hole is where the Great pipes should be... but it is a sign of progress. This week the organ restoration work has seen more pipes being taken to the Willis & Sons workshop for cleaning, along with some of the sound boards. Further cleaning work has been taking place on site.

From inside, there is a clear view through what should be the internal workings of the instrument; the ceiling of the Cathedral is clearly visible above.

A few pipes rest in the choir loft, awaiting their return to action. There are more pictures of the work on the Willis & Sons website - click here.
