I've just been browsing through the IBO Redundant Organs list and discovered this, I'm appalled they are describing this as an undistinguished organ!

Is anyone able to flesh out the spec on this instrument? I'm in London next week, and may visit to get some details...

First Listed 29th November 2013
Original Builder    N P Mander

Given Description    This organ was built new in the mid 1960s for the new church at Perivale. That church is now to be rebuilt, as a church, but without this organ. Pleasant and brightly voiced but otherwise undistinguished. Well made and easy to maintain.

What is the exact spec of this instrument, nothing on NPOR...
