Betty’s Stops!

Stops 2    Organ teaching    Stops 1

Betty has a fine array of stops. Each stop corresponding to a different set of pipes, which correspond to a particular instrument. Above you can see some of the stops which are pulled out to engage the particular set of pipes. To sound all the pipes you literally have to “pull out all the stops!”

[Above you can see Nicky showing a schoolchild from St James and St Michael’s primary school how the stops work.]
