I had the opportunity to visit Browne’s workshop again today to get an update on how things were progressing. You’ll be able to see a number of things from the pictures below, in particular:
- Repaired casework, free from any evidence of woodworm damage
- The new plinth for the console, so that the console can be used in different positions around the church
- Pipework cleaned, and new pipework selected
Over the next couple of weeks, the new console will be assembled and wired up. Once this is done it can be connected to the soundboards, and the pipework carefully put back in. New soundboards will need to be made for the additional pipework.
