032 Lillington Church and Organ
New Event

St Martins Church, Lillington. ST 629 127
Barrel organs were once a common feature of
Dorset churches. They were introduced in the
early 19th Century to replace the village choirs.
In due course they were replaced with the organs
and pianos we hear today.
The organ in Lillington church has been recently
restored making it the only working barrel organ
in a Dorset church (it can also be played via a
keyboard). As well as visiting the medieval church
there will be an opportunity to, not only hear
the barrel organ being played, but possibly sing
along to it.
