The hand-blown historic pipe organ in Cowling Hill Baptist Church, Yorkshire - a quick smartphone video:-

I can't believe that despite growing up within 5 miles of this wonderful little instrument, my father having preached many times in the chapel, and having a good 1/4 of my ancestors in the churchyard, this is the first time I've heard it!!

And I must confess a certain fondness for Laycock (& Bannister) 's organs; most of the organs I played on in my youth were L&B or Binns.



A nice mid-19th century sound, but what a fantastic case!  Like Matt, I've sat around within a few miles of the instrument and never knew of it.  A little treasure of an instrument.
