46-Key Limonaire No. 3948

Built by Limonaire Frères in Paris, c. 1909, as a 35-key instrument, this organ was imported by Chiappa Ltd in the early 1920s and converted to play standardised 46-key music. It was sold to Harvey & Sanders who used it in their juvenile ride to travel London and the home counties (most notably Amersham Charter Fair). Ted Reed purchased both the organ and ride in 1986 before selling the juvenile sometime later. The organ retains its showland decoration.
Played on open days between:
November, January & March: 11:20 – 11:35 & 13:45 – 14:00
December, February & April: 12:30 – 12:45 & 15:25 – 15:40
