Surrey, UK - Betchworth, a sleepy Surrey village famed for St Michael's church where the wedding took place of Angus and Laura in Four Weddings and a Funeral, has a new arrival in the farmyard home of recently relocated and long esteeemed Antique Church Furnishings.

The cluster of buildings and structures includes a ramshackle corrugated iron clad timber framed lean-to in which the new tenants inherited an old Morris Commercial truck which formed a backdrop to our photo of Lawrence Skilling, John McNulty and Steve Williams and which we understand will be offered for sale on eBay.

Inside one of the small circular corrugated iron silos are newly installed ablutions while another has flat-packed broken down pews awaiting assembly into new lengths for new buyers. The main shed, newly floored and refurbished, as well as a large container, houses the stocks of ACF - pews, chairs, tables, marble wood and metal statuary, ephemera and two harmoniums - or should it be harmonia.

One of these, an American 1880s Angelus pump organ harmonium by E P Carpenter in working order and with the 'Aero Dynamic Indicator' gauge to show how hard one is pumping which is 121cm wide by 182cm high is for sale at 354.

There is a formidable list of ancient ecclesiastica ranging from altars to votives with everything between.
