Maurice Eglinton formerly of Hele & Co, who is also one of our members, was
present to give a talk about the organ and to answer questions.
St. John the Evangelist at Ivybridge has a small, two manual organ that was built in 1880. Most of the organ is original.
The main part of the organ is in the Choir Vestry, with the console fitted into an archway through to the north side of the choir,
with the upper part of the arch framing the attractively painted and stencilled display pipes.
In 1967 it was fitted with a balanced swell pedal and a new pedal board. A new stop was added and the keys were re-covered with ivory.
The organ now has eleven speaking stops and three couplers.
