Who are we?

Hadrian Lodge is a very popular Lodge, founded in1882. The Lodge meets in the Ingham Street Temple, South Shields, next to the Morrisons supermarket and shares its ample car park.  The Lodge has a historic association with seafarers but welcomes members from all areas of society.

What we do

We enjoy meeting for masonic ceremonies, followed by social gatherings within the hall. We are proud to include members from a variety of backgrounds, enabling all to contribute to our ceremonies. The hall is served by a popular bar and catering facilities. We contribute to Masonic charities through raffles and donations.copy

Why join us?

Above all, Hadrian Lodge is a very friendly Lodge. On joining Hadrian Lodge, you will immediately make many friends. Groups of members often meet socially outside of our meetings. There are members who frequently visit other Lodges throughout Durham and other Provinces. Some even occasionally venture across the border to Scotland. The Lodge makes a great effort to make sure new members become socially integrated into the Lodge. All members are provided with opportunities to progress in Freemasonry.copy
