The Roslyn Organ

The team and The Abbey are delighted to present one of the worlds finest carved masterpieces made of Oak timbers from shipwrecks and Manor houses.

The Oak timber is 800–1000 years in age and weighs 40 tonnes. The carving is one of the fewest rare works of art permitted to leave the United Kingdom. It was built in 1911 by Messrs Norman & Beard (now Messrs Hill & Son and Norman & Beard), and is an outstandingly successful specimen of their work. Designed be L.F.Roslyn, and carved by Messrs Samuel Elliott and Sons of Caversham & Reading, it was housed in the Third Church of Christ Scientist, Curzon Street, Mayfair, London.

In 1980 it was brought to Australia, where it was assembled in Junee, taking approximately 5 months, as the only guide was a photograph. The craftsmanship of this beautiful Organ can be viewed in two separate sections within the main room at The Abbey Function Centre, Gold Creek Village, Federation Square, Canberra.
