Wekerom, Dutch Reformed Church (20/II/P, 1985/2005)

Wekerom, Dutch Reformed Church  (20/II/P, 1985/2005) Martijn van der Horst

In 1985 the Reformed Church of Rozenburg bought a second hand pipe organ (16/II/P) from Van den Heuvel.  After 20 years this church was closed and the organ was offered for sale on the internet site of Van den Heuvel.

The Dutch Reformed Church of Wekerom purchased the organ. In March 2005  the organ was dismantled and shipped to Dordrecht. The specification was enlarged by four stops. This required also enlargement of the organ case. A new wind chest and action for the pedal were made. Consultant was Peter Eilander who inaugurated the organ.

There are 29 pictures of the assembly in the builders hall: Of the church assembly 22 pictures are available:
