Who are we?
The Lodge was consecrated on the 7th of April 1920 and it meets in Stockton Masonic Hall close to Stockton’s high street.
What we do
The lodge was formed by members of the legal profession and other professional men to celebrate the end of the first world war and the perceived freedom the world would enjoy. Its current membership is still made up of mainly professional men but it welcomes all and has become very inclusive.
We enjoy our meetings and encourage each other in public speaking. Charitable causes are well supported.
Why join us?
If you enjoy challenging yourself and getting involved in new ventures we will help and encourage you on this new journey.
