Either via satnav using TS24 0QN – Regent Street Hartlepool (We don’t have an official street number)
From the South (from the A19) follow the A689 towards Hartlepool, then follow signs to the Headland (if you keeping going straight ahead at every roundabout and set of lights you’ll get there).
From the North follow the A179 (from the A19) then follow signs to the Headland (if you keeping going straight ahead at every roundabout and set of lights you’ll get there).
Local access is via Northgate, High Street & Church Walk turning right into Regent Street. The lodge is on the left approx. 100 meters along Regent Street.
The Entrance to the lodge is opposite Regent Square Gardens opening direct onto the footpath. The kerbs are lowered so present little resistance to wheelchairs however there is a lowered kerb at the Church Walk end of Regent Street should access be an issue from that perspective.
We have recently bid for a defibrillator via the Provincial Grand Lodge of Durham which if successful will service both the Masonic Hall and the wider local community.
The Lodge is less than 3 miles from an urgent care centre and a number of members are first aid trained.
Access is via the footpath on Regent Street. Double doors allow access for less abled & wheelchair users with the toilets & dining room based on the ground floor. The first-floor lodge room is accessed via a wide staircase with a banister and a stairlift is also available.
A Wheelchair is also available should it be needed.
Toilets are situated on the ground floor and are DDA compliant. Male toilets comprise one cubicle and 5 individual urinals. The ladies’ toilets comprise 2 cubicles with accompanying vanity units.
There is a single toilet cubicle on the first floor.
The building is nearly 200 years old and is best described as quaint & historical. It is centrally heated, and seating is comfortable holding up to 70 people in both the Lodge room and dining room. We have a small well stocked bar and the current steward works wonders from the galley Kitchen to feed the assembled brethren. We have a piano for musical accompaniment when singing the national anthem etc.
The building has good acoustics and at present we have not found the need for a hearing loop but this is in consideration to ensure everyone can hear clearly.
