Bedford & Titchmarsh - Saturday 11th March

The first meeting of 2017 takes us to two of Harrison & Harrison's recent projects in the south midlands/east anglia.  The day commences at St Andrew's Bedford home to a brand new 2 manual, 22 stop mechanical action organ. Lunch will also be provided at St Andrew's.

After lunch, we shall make the 45 minute journey north to the village of Titchmarsh, just over the Northamptonshire border. The parish church of St. Mary the Virgin is fortunate in having an 1870 T. C. Lewis and, following a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, this was restored by Harrison & Harrison last year. We will have the opportunity to learn about their approach to this restoration and of course to hear it demonstrated.

For those choosing public transport the station at Bedford is 1.7 miles from St Andrew's Church and lifts will be provided to and from Titchmarsh; there is also a station at Kettering, the nearest town to Titchmarsh.

Please contact the Administrator for booking information.
