This two manual organ in a small country church in Bedfordshire was designed and built by Robert Shaftoe of Pavenham. Stephen Bicknell assisted with the design of the case, which is made of English oak, and is modelled after early nineteenth century work by English builders such as Thomas Elliot. The console panelling and fittings are made of English walnut, once much used for furniture but now a rare and expensive timber.
