This two manual organ in historic English style was designed by Stephen Bicknell while working for J.W.Walker & Sons Ltd. The consultant was Dr. John Harper. The case is early eighteenth century, possibly by Christopher Shrider, and originally stood in St. Mary Abbott's, Kensington. It was acquired by Sir Thomas Jackson for Oriel College towards the end of the nineteenth century. The internal construction of the organ is modern in keeping with J.W.Walker's house style, but the scaling, construction and voicing of the pipework reflects an earlier tradition.
