In 1882 bouwde Alex Young & Sons opus 75. Een nieuw orgel voor de Church of Saint John the Baptist in Knutsford (Cheshire). Omstreeks 1930 is het orgel omgebouwd door Binns, Fitton & Haley. In 1985 volgde weer een ombouw door L. Reeves. Het kegelladen-orgel heeft elektro-pneumatische tractuur en een radiaal concaaf pedaalklavier. De stemmingstemperatuur is evenredig zwevend.
