Who are we?
Based in Dunston, Gateshead, Winlaton St Paul’s Lodge was consecrated in October 1980. Originally formed as a dining lodge with a remit of charitable donation, today it retains many of its early traditions whilst incorporating a modern viewpoint to enhance the quality of members’ enjoyment of freemasonry.
