Conservation for 1865 Walker Organ

St Stephen's Anglican Church, Richmond

We are excited to announce that we have won the contract for the conservation of the 1865 Walker organ.

The St Stephen's project is currently at the mid way point, and includes cleaning, preservation and minor repairs to all parts, releathering of the bellows and hand feeders and wind chests, and careful conservation work to preserve all internal original finishes, and to the casework and façade pipework.

Owing to the age and historical significance of this instrument all work is being carried out according to the strictest Heritage guidelines.

The project is due to be completed Easter 2019.
