Who are we?
The Marquis of Granby Lodge (warranted by the Grand Lodge of England in 1763) has a history stemming back to the early eighteenth century with its earliest known minutes recorded on 24 June 1738. We endeavour to support worthy charities and help local communities. Today we are a vibrant group who believe in Integrity, Friendship, Respect and Charity. Whilst keeping the age-old traditions of the Lodge, we incorporate modern everyday requirements to enhance membership quality and a feeling of belonging.
What we do
The Marquis of Granby Lodge prides itself on being a group of forward-thinking Masons with a common goal, to meet with like-minded people and enjoy each other’s company, whilst trying to make a difference, both in each other’s lives and in our local community.
Why join us?
As one of the oldest Lodges in the country, we have a wide cross section of members who believe in living life to the full and working hard but above all, helping others whilst trying to have fun in the process. Our aim is always with charity in mind and assisting others.
Parking is on the street outside the building, and it can on occasions be busy but it is free and generally available.
The approach is level off the pavement.
Wide wheelchair accessible doors.
The Hall is also equipped with a defibrillator and has Emergency exits across all floors of the building.
The hall is accessible for those with limited mobility with a combination of lift and stair lifts.
Many of our meeting places were built before disabilities were fully considered; many have protected status making major adaptations difficult. But Freemasons in themselves will adapt and assist Brethren, and visitors, to fully participate and enjoy the facilities.
The Hall is equipped with Male/female and disabled toilet facilities.
A grand entrance leads into a hallway which runs through the heart of the building past the grand staircase to the great hall. The Hall itself has a modern bar, fully functioning commercial Kitchen, a three-tier garden ideal for summer socials and functions as well as a first-floor committee room and Temple room to seat 100.
There is lift and stair lifts in the building.
