The organ was originally built by Roger Pulham in 1983 for The Church of the Holy Spirit, Southsea. It was later purchased by Rupert Gough who used it as a practice organ (revoiced for a domestic setting?). It has an oak case with carved pipeshades. The upper-pitched manual stops have divided stop action to enable a solo voice to be accompanied on the same keyboard. As we've remodelled the manual soundboard to include essentially larger-scaled foundation stops, the original wedge bellows has been replaced with one of over twice the size and capacity (see photo). The blower motor has also been replaced with one of larger capacity to wind the entire organ including the 16' pedal stop.
