- Heathfield Road Welsh Presbyterian Church Liverpool - largely demolished 2011 Installed by Rushworth & Dreaper in 1950. Dismantled November 2010 by Jardines for a private owner and moved in several lorries to another former Welsh Presbyterian chapel in Mid Wales for restoration along with some contemporary contents from the since demolished Liverpool Church. Evidence uncovered by Jardines and new owner indicates that this tubular pneumatic instrument was probably rebuilt from a much earlier 19th-century Hope-Jones Organ. There are traces of some tracking, the feet and detail of the wooden pipes are typical of Hope-Jones and have the same paint colours as Hope-Jones examples observed elsewhere. Several cast iron weights from the regulators are cast with the words HOPE JONES and two others have N & L (?) castings. More details on National Pipe Organ Register.
