Reading your article in Burnley Express concerning the church organ at Padiham Road Methodist Church, brought back happy memories.

I was fortunate to have organ tuition on the said instrument in the early 1960s.

The organist at the then Ightenhill Methodist Church, Mr Harry Marsden (FRCM) introduced me to organ music.

I remember the organ having a beautiful tone and it being a pleasure to play. I am pleased it is going to still be used in its new home in Germany.
