Database Manager on October 14, 2014:

As part of its work on the organ, Dobson built a completely new mechanical key action and electric stop action, enlarged the manual key compass from 56 to 58 notes, provided new pipework to expand the organ-s capabilities, completely revoiced the existing pipework, and repaired the windchests, wind system and those pipes that were retained.
