Freemasonry is the worlds oldest recorded Fraternity with over 6 million members worldwide although it is fair to say the origins may have been lost in time but it was probably formed from the Guild of Stonemasons who built churches, castles and cathedrals.
In modern day terms Freemasons are a universal group of like minded men who share in the bond of Brotherhood who make good men better men both in the Masonic lodge and in their communities.
Charity is at the forefront of all that Freemasons do giving to both Masonic and non Masonic charities alike.
Few know that, after the National Lottery, Freemasons make the second largest per annum donation to charities in this country!
Who can join the Masons?
Men from all backgrounds regardless of religion or race can become Freemasons.
The only qualifications are that they are over 21 Years of age, have a belief in a Supreme Being and do not have any criminal convictions.
Personal recommendation from an existing Mason has always been the norm.
However, the purpose of our Masonic web site is to give you an insight into Freemasonry and what it can offer you.
We hope to be able to answer your questions throughout our pages to help you decide if joining the Masons is for you. If you would prefer to talk with one of our members get in touch here.
