A warm welcome from Neil McGill, to the new home for the Lancaster and District Group
Our group is made up of 23 lodges and 10 chapters. We have five meeting places within the group: Kerneforde Hall in Carnforth, Morecambe Freemasons Hall, Rowley Court in Lancaster; Silverdale Freemasons Hall and Wyrebank in Garstang.
Freemasonry has enjoyed strong links with Lancaster for more than 220 years dating back to the founding of the Lodge of Fortitude No 281 in 1789, however, although some traditions have been upheld over the years, we are continuing to move with modern times.
We pride ourselves on supporting a wide range of charitable causes. This is achieved through individual lodge donations, the West Lancashire Freemasons’ Charity and the Masonic Charitable Foundation. Freemasons in Lancaster and our wider West Lancashire Province provide substantial financial assistance to those less fortunate than ourselves and who are in need and distress. All of our charitable giving is provided directly by our own members.
If you are interested in becoming a Freemason or if you would like more information, please contact our membership officer by completing an enquiry form.
He will be able to answer any questions you or your partner may have about Freemasonry in general and to satisfy any reservations and concerns you may have about the ideals of Freemasonry.
If you are already a Mason who is unattached from a lodge or if you have relocated to Lancaster or its surrounding areas, we would be very pleased to welcome you to our group.
I hope you enjoy your visit to our website.
