Holy Rood Church Barnsley

Holy Rood Church Barnsley

Skrabl have been instructed to produce a new organ with mechanical action for the Church of the Holy Rood in Barnsley.

There has been a small single-manual organ in this large and impressive church since it was built in 1903, but it was never intended to be a permanent feature.

It will be replaced by a new organ which does justice to the magnificent west window of the Victorian Gothic-style building. 

The instrument will be built in two phases and the specification illustrates which stops will be in place when the organ is delivered and which are prepared for a later scheme to bring the organ to completion.
