A message from the Master of our lodge.

A very warm welcome to the Marquis of Granby Lodge's website.


The highest honour that a lodge can bestow on a member is to install him as Master of the Lodge, in normal circumstances a Freemason would occupy this office for a period of one year and then install his successor.


I was installed as Master on the 14th January 2020 and I was looking forward to what should have been a busy year.


Many organisations were affected by the Covid Pandemic and Freemasonry was no different. Our meetings were cancelled, from April 2020 until August 2021. Of course this meant that as there were no meetings, then I could not install my successor. Which explains why I'm still in office as Master of our Lodge.


It was a delightful occasion when our meetings resumed in September 2021. Though we all understand that individuals have their own circumstances and choices about when they'd return to our meetings.

WBro Jason Heels, Worshipful Master of Marquis of Granby Lodge No.124

I invite you to explore our lodge’s website, if you are not a Freemason but, after reading about what we do, if you are interested in joining our organisation here at the Marquis of Granby Lodge, please get in touch.

You don't have to know a Freemason to join us - you only have to ask - and we'd be delighted to hear from you.

Worshipful Master,

Marquis of Granby Lodge No.124

Finding Freemasonry

This is the first of several videos featuring Freemasons who live, work and attend their lodge here in the north east of England.

The Freemasons in this story explain, in their own words, how they came to join our organisation - just as any Freemason would reply if you asked them that question. Freemasons are encouraged to talk openly about our organisation.

Our thanks to the 'Comms team' of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Durham who have produced a series of short episodes, this is the first, with more to follow.
