Re: A couple of organs that I look after

"PCND, you ask about photos of the Saffron Walden organ. I have some, but you can get an idea from here:

I can email a better console picture. I also have some recordings.

Thank you for this information, Peter.

I shall check the link when I get home tonight.

Re: A couple of organs that I look after

Geoff was known as the Pedal Board King. I wouldnt like to guess how many he repieced in his time. When he was made redundant in about 1997, I urged him to carry on in the trade as his work was very good. He took his time over whatever he was doing and always turned out a first class job. He didnt want to carry on, so worked locally in a sandpaper factory and then when they relocated to Yorkshire, went there with them.

I met up with Geoff in Ipswich just after his redundancy, and myself and two chaps from Bishops tried our best to persuade him that he should be back in the trade. He was happy making sanding belts though, and he seems to have settled in well in Yorkshire. We are still in touch from time to time. A very consciencious organ builder, and a born enthusiast!
