A 19th Century organ owned by a Market Weighton church has been recognised as having outstanding historic and musical importance.

The unique instrument at St John’s Methodist Church’s has been awarded a grade one Historic Organ Certificate, the best available, by the British Institute of Organ Studies, after the church applied for it to be assessed.
