Barrel Organ
Barrel Organ & Washington Flag in
the North Transept Manufactured by
the firm of J. W. Walker, the barrel organ
was purchased for the church by Nathaniel
Bond in 1858 at the then exorbitant price of
100 guineas. It was in regular use until 1890. The Washington flag was presented to the parish of Steeple by the Mayor of Washington in honour of it's connection with the ancestors of the first President of the United States of America, George Washington.
The font is 12th C. with a plain round bowl and shaft.

Behind the christening font can be
seen the second working organ in this church, brought from Tyneham when
the church there was closed due to the
requisitioning of the territory for military purposes. The organ was purchased
by Mr. & Mrs. Bond of Tyneham as a
thank-offering for the recovery of their
son from a dangerous wound received
at the siege of Ladysmith in South
Africa in December 1899.
