Database Manager on May 06, 2013:

Updated through online information from David Baker. -- (I am Organist/choirmaster of Holy Trinity Anglican Church, which shares space with the Methodist congregation.) Instrument is in extremely poor condition; as others have noted, it appears that speakers were placed on the manual chest and it appears that the metal pipework was taken off the chest and probably crushed. Trackers appear to be mostly undamaged. Unable to see condition of bellows.
