Removing the Big Pipes

Today the organ builders begin work to remove the largest pipes from the Harrison organ. This is a mammoth undertaking due to the sheet size and weight of the pipework, some weighing upwards of 700kg. The scaffolding which reaches right up into the ceiling of the Cathedral Chancel is around 25m high in order to tackle the tallest pipes.
