The plaque on the organ states 1875. The plaque is not original, having been added much later and the date is incorrect.  The organ is placed on its side with its back to the north wall in a high, narrow, western gallery. Access to the gallery is through a stone, spiral staircase accessed from an external door at the south west corner of the church.

The state of the organ is poor and would benefit from a sympathetic restoration.
The swell shutters were removed and stored behind the organ.
