Salisbury Cathedral organ undergoing significant repair work

Salisbury Cathedral’s famous Father Willis organ is being dismantled so it can undergo extensive repair work.

The musical instrument’s at the centre of one of Britain’s most historic sites, but staff say it’s in desperate need of restoration.

After the organ’s been repaired it’ll be reinstalled next year.

The Cathedral says the project is going to cost around £700,000 to complete, so it's been appealing for donations from the public to help towards the cost.

During the work, a special exhibition on the history of the organ is going to be on display.

On the Cathedral's social media accounts, staff have been sharing updates on the project.
