ORGANS FOR THE PUBLIC TO PLAY

Please look out for the organ symbol in the Guide Book, and the link on the sidebar in this website, indicating that visiting organists are welcome to play.

There are many interesting small 1-manual organs to be found in village churches, Brocklesby, Greetwell and Cherry Willingham as examples, and there are some good 2-manual instruments also, such as in Nettleham, Faldingworth, Stow Minster, Spridlington, Scothern.
