We are an old lodge being consecrated in 1898. Our lodge was formed in respect to a revered brother of that time Albert Lucking. We maintain the traditions of the Lodge which have been carried forward over the years. In celebrating our first hundred years, a booklet was produced giving an overview of the lodge, members and events during the period 1898 - 1998; further history is still being discovered and added together with us, now preparing for our 125th year in 2023. PLEASE... check out our Freemasonry & History pages for more information.
We are proud to have achieved PATHWAY LODGE status by embracing the United Grand Lodge of England and the Essex Provincial Grand Lodge recognised Freemasonry Pathway systems to achieve the best operations of our Lodge.
We are a non-denominational Lodge and are therefore, not restricted to any particular or specific religious denomination.
We meet in Saxon Hall, Aviation Way, Southend-on-Sea during the 3rd Saturday’s in October, November, January, February & March – Our meetings can commence at varying times, between 3pm to 4.30pm and conclude following a meal usually between 9pm and 10pm.
In order to practice our ceremonies we hold Lodge of Instruction evenings during Wednesday evenings, September to November and January to March. These are held at Saxon Hall and commence at 7.45pm and finish between 9pm to 9.30pm. The evenings are also an opportunity to meet other brethren in an informal atmosphere and integrate into the Lodge.
We are a not for profit organisation.
Other than our meetings we have many external Social Events organised during the year by our Charity Steward. These can vary from members involvement in local charity raising, beer & wine tasting evenings, Ladies festivals, attending our annual Stisted Hall fete all of which you can get a feel for by checking our Charity pages.
