Church Of St Nicholas

Two Manual, 14 stop
Chancel Organ

The Church of St Nicholas, built of Kentish ragstone, dates from the 13th and 14th Centuries and comprises a chancel, nave, South aisle and West tower. It stands in the heart of the village, famous as the location for “The Darling Buds of May” television series, high on the Greensand Ridge overlooking the Kentish Weald. The new organ, completed in February 2008, sits opposite the Dering Chapel against the North wall of the chancel.

Dedicated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the instrument has turned out to be an exciting organ to play and a versatile teaching instrument.
