Lewis 17 stop two manual and pedal installed in Clayton Street Methodist Church, Blackburn, England c. 1883. This was dismantled in 1958 and rebuilt by Conacher and Co. (Huddersfield) and became the basis for the Ravenhill instrument in 1962. The church was damaged severly by fire in 1979 when most of the existing organ was lost or damaged beyond repair. The new organ has slider soundboards and has 28 speaking stops, 1584 pipes and incorporates some of the old pipework from the swell department of the old organ as this was protected from the highest tempratures.
