Our organ is a very rare example of work by John Avery and is both a charming and valuable instrument. It was originally built in 1783, and came from Apethorpe Hall.
In 1991, K Tickell and Co. of Northampton rebuilt it as part of the celebrations marking 750 years of Christian ministry at St. Andrew's.
