Pipes returned to organ in £2m refurbishment at York Minster

Work to rebuild York Minster’s historic grand organ as part of a £2 million “once-in-a-century” refurbishment is nearing completion as the final decorative pipes were returned to the instrument. The organ, which is one of the largest in the country – weighing around 20,000kg and containing 5,403 pipes – was removed from the minster in October 2018 for cleaning, repair and replacement of its parts.
