On the 18th January 2007, John Marsden gave a
talk to the Tickhill & Local District Local History Society on
the history of the organ at St. Mary's, Tickhill.
Illustrated with photographs by Chris Garritt, the talk
covered the building of the organ by Charles Brindley of
Sheffield in 1857, one of the first he completed, marking a
major step forward in English organ construction influenced by
the German organ building tradition.
The talk described and illustrated key details of organ
construction and operation as well as the many changes, moves
and improvements since its installation in St. Mary's.
