Cathedral Organ – Console lifted; Main and West Cases installed

A very busy six weeks for the Nicholson & Co team. Two 40ft containers have arrived and been unpacked; the Main and West cases and façade pipes have been installed; and the building frames, soundboards and wind system are all in place.

But the most exciting part of this phase was the lifting of the fixed console. This console weighs over 400kg and was lifted to its permanent home above the Marsden Chapel using a hoist system between two scaffold towers.

Team One have returned to the UK and we look forward to welcoming Team Two tomorrow for the completion of the installation.
