The Conacher organ of Lockwood Baptist Church

Our organ carries on the tradition of organ music in places of worship started in the fourteenth century, when pipe organs as we know them today were developed.

Before that a simple instrument was used, based on an instrument which was invented in approximately 300 BC by the Greeks; this instrument was in itself a development of wind or pipe instruments found in Ancient Egypt art and Hebrew writing, which were blown into to produce a sound, similar to modern day recorders.

Our organ was installed in 1901. It was built by local firm of Peter Conacher & Co at Springwood; consisting of  three manuals, twenty nine speaking stops and tracker/pneumatic action and cost £644/10/-. It is still regularly used in the church services.
