The St Andrew’s organ is, without doubt, one of the finest parish church organs in Somerset. It was originally built by Grey of London (later Grey & Davison) in 1829. A number of rebuilds and enlargements, have taken place since then, the latest of which were carried out in 1995 and 2000 by Brian Verrier and Colin Brice of The Deane Organ Builders of Taunton. The organ now contains 41 speaking stops and a 64 channel piston capture system.
