Who are we?
The Rowlandson Lodge is a friendly Lodge, with approx. 40 members of varying ages. We are the oldest Lodge within Ferryhill and have been meeting at RFH since 1909 and have strong links to the local community. Our ceremonies are quite different from most of those within the Province of Durham and we have a different working ritual to most Lodges in the Province, our Installation of the new Master each year is special to all who attend.
