Colden Common Organs

The organ of Colden Common was bought for £150 in 1898. It was built by Albert E. Pease of Stoke Newington, a small builder who traded from 1890 to 1909. It is said Pease built cheap organs but the organ of Colden Common is competently constructed in an honest manner of sound materials. David White restored the organ in 1998.
