Who are we?
The lodge was consecrated at Crook, in the Mechanics Hall on the 5th of March 1884 and was the first of the twenty-nine lodges in the Province of Durham to be named after the town in which it was to meet. Whilst maintaining the
traditions of the Lodge we incorporate and appreciate modern everyday requirements to enhance the experience of our membership and promote a feeling of belonging.
What we do
Crook Lodge is firmly embedded in the community and through its like-minded members we try to make a difference whenever possible but never forgetting the importance of family and the balance that work also requires.
Why join us?
We have an excellent cross section of members dedicated to the principles of Freemasonry with a friendly and supportive approach to our activities and enjoying each other’s company.
