Asbestos found in church organ

worK has been taking place to remove blue asbestos discovered in the pipe organ at Berwick Parish Church.

Whilst not posing any danger undisturbed, removal was a matter for the experts so a trio of workers from the Chirmarn Group spent three days on the project last week.

When cast iron radiators and pipes were installed in the early part of the last century, pipes passing through the organ chamber were lagged with asbestos to reduce heat damage to organ pipes and leather bellows.
