According to "A Brief History of St. Edmund's Church", cf. www.parishofupperskerne.org.uk/StE7.htm the organ, given by the rector Pickering in the early 18th century, is on the north side of the chancel. Its original home was on a western gallery. It was moved in 1840 to the north-west corner of the nave before returning to the chancel in 1914. The case and a very small amount of pipework are all that remain of the original instrument, details of which can be found in the NPOR. (Click here.)
