Access to the chamber was through a door in the chancel. At an unknown time, a 4'/2' Principal unit was added to the Swell – replacing the original unified 2-2/3' Nasard and 2' Flautino. In June 2015, the church elected to replace their Kilgen pipe organ with an appliance. The pipes were crated and taken by an unnamed person or firm for reuse. The console was stored in a garage for several years, and listed for sale on Facebook 'Pipe Organ Garage Sale' in September 2018. It's subsequent disposition is unknown. The other components like windchests, regulators, expression shutters, etc. were presumably consigned to the dump.
