"A faculty was issued in 1789 to erect the gallery which is usually used to house musicians to accompany services.  It still functions in that way today as it holds the small pipe organ built in 1840 and presented by Reverend William Mousely and finally installed in 1873 by Reverend Gregory Bateman."
