Who are we?
Manor Lodge is a small Craft Lodge based in Ferryhill, Co. Durham. Consecrated in 1963 it is the second oldest lodge meeting in the Ferryhill building.
Manor Lodge, although only having a small membership (20), prides itself in a friendly atmosphere, exceptional ceremonies performed to the highest of standards and the brethren with a genuine pride in the lodge and hospitality towards visitors.
What we do
Manor Lodge not only supports Masonic charities, but local charities and organisations with donations raised from social events and raffles.
Why join us?
As with all lodges, the brethren do not just join the local lodge but a world- wide fraternity. We are part of an organisation that does not discriminate, be you a new member or the longest serving member EVERYONE is equal
The senior members of the lodge nurture the junior brethren through the various positions within the lodge with encouragement and always remind them that the ritual does not have to be ‘perfect’ and not to be afraid of attempting the longer pieces of the ritual. Some senior brethren have been involved in masonry for in excess of 25 years so have a lot of experience to pass on.
We have a large car park at the rear of the building, with ample parking.
Long steady ramp to front & rear entrances and level access to ground floor.
Both front & rear entrances have large doors and easy access for all.
Emergency exits from upper floor has steps but ramps and evacuation sheets when building in use.

We have internal ramps for wheelchair access. Rest chair available. Hearing loop in the temple.
Dining tables are wheelchair accessible.
There is a large lift available to access the upper floor, where the Lodge room is located, and a small stairlift to the lodge room for the final 5 steps.
