Who are we?
Clarence Lodge is steeped in history and celebrated its 125th anniversary in October 2018. It currently has 40 subscribing members who come from all walks of life and live mainly around Hartlepool and Teesside. Ages range from 19 – 80 and many recent members joined as a result of internet enquiries.
What we do
The Lodge has strong links to the ancient traditions of freemasonry while enjoying a lively social side, which includes wives and partners.
The Lodge supports all charities and good causes suggested by its membership and their wider families and friends. Most recently, we helped four young people to join as crewmembers of the Tall Ships Race 2023, that would not otherwise have been able to do so.
Why join us?
Every Freemason thinks that their Lodge is the best! It’s not for us to say but Clarence Lodge is well known for being a lively and friendly Lodge, that visitors enjoy coming to.
