In complete contrast to the brand new "no expense spared" organ in the Elgar Concert Hall, the organ at Broadway URC Walsall was built 25 years ago on a shoe-string budget from redundant pipework (mainly from local organs by Nicholson of Worcester and Nicholson & Lord of Walsall). It is a bold attempt to show what can be achieved by a small church with very limited resources, but which was determined to replace an electronic organ with something better.
