The Good Shepherd, Tadworth

Organ specification

Originally built by Abbott & Smith and possibly installed second hand into the church in1912.   

In 1981 Peter Wells converted the pneumatic exhaust action soundboards to electric action,  provided the Kimber Allen detached console and enlarged the instrument.    

Since that time only routine maintenance has been carried out on the instrument. 


The organ is currently tuned and maintained by F H Browne & Sons.
