Long Description:

Church organ inside St Mary's church, Teynham.

"A two manual. ‘Hunter’ with tracker action, was installed in 1910, the gift of Robert Lake. It was completely overhauled and re-voiced in 1976, damaged by storm water in 1979, and again rebuilt in 1980, including an extension to the ‘Great’ organ in memory of the late Stewart Lewis, son of Walter Lewis who was organist for over 70 years until his retirement. The gallery was erected in 1893."
