Updated through online information from Chad Staten. -- This organ is shoehorned into an opening on the front-left side of the church (when facing the altar). It speaks through a tiny wooden-slatted screen, and pipework is barely visible (photo not possible from outside the chamber). A swell box with horizontal shades is located in the back of the chamber, operated by a Peterson actuator. Source: direct observation
