  • The History of Freemasonry in Penrith and The East Lakes and 300 Years of the United Grand Lodge of England

    The History of Freemasonry in Penrith and The East Lakes and 300 Years of the United Grand Lodge of England

    Freemasons have made, commissioned and used a range of objects, books and documents which together tell the fascinating story of the fraternity. An intriguing selection of such artefacts owned by the Penrith Masonic Hall Trust is being made available for an exhibition to run at Penrith and Eden Museum from 3 June to 10 September 2017 (extended run) to mark the tercentenary of the United Grand Lodge of England. On 24 June 1717 four London lodges met at the Goose and Gridiron Tavern near Saint Paul’s Cathedral as a Grand Lodge, and elected a Grand Master to preside over them, and so began the history of modern freemasonry.
