Hello and a very warm welcome to, what is relatively speaking, one of the oldest lodges in England.
Established in 1836 we have a rich history and a membership that represents a broad range of ages, professions and interests.
The Lodge, as with others, offers an opportunity for friendship, self development, and the participation in a wide range of charitable activities.
We meet on a Wednesday evening between the months of September and June, but also organise a number of social events throughout the year.
Please come and visit us soon!
Founded on the three great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth, it aims to bring together men of goodwill, regardless of background and differences.
People might think that to become a Freemason is quite difficult. It’s actually straightforward. The essential qualifications for admission is that you have a belief in a Supreme Being.
It is usual for candidates to be “mature men of 21 years and over”, but in some circumstances candidates between the ages of 18 and 21 can be admitted.
The Brethren of Scientific Lodge welcome you, not only to this website, but to the Lodge itself. Freemasonry under the United Grand Lodge of England is the UK’s largest, fraternal and charitable organisation. It has over 300,000 members across around 8,000 lodges throughout England and Wales and 30,000 more members overseas
Who can become a Freemason? Our fraternity has a wonderful history, which dates back more three centuries. It is one of the world’s oldest fraternities, a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values.
Suggested Steps: If you are interested in becoming a Freemason, we advise that you first talk to a family member, friend or colleague whom you already know to be a member. They will be able to explain to you what they can about the fraternity.
If you don’t know anyone at all who is a member, then get in touch with us, tell us a little bit about yourself and your reasons for wishing to join. See the “contact us” link. Arrangements will be made to meet you socially to find out more about you, and to give you a chance to find out more about us.
You would then in due course be invited to meet a committee of members from the Lodge, prior to being balloted for membership of the Lodge. All being well, a date would then be fixed for your admission.
