The bulk of the organ at St Mark's Church in Bredbury near Stockport, was originally built by William Hill and Son in 1906 for Cross Hills Congregational Church in Blackburn, Lancashire. In 1963 the organ was moved here and installed by the John Compton Organ Company Ltd which included the installation of a new detached console.

It is interesting to see how closely the console design resembles that of the cinema organs which Comptons were famous for building in the 1920s and 1930s. Less noticeable in the videos but more obvious when seated at the organ is many similarities in design between this console and that of the 357 and 363 'electrone' models which were in production at this time and now the mainstay of the Compton company with pipes being the exception.
