Provincial Grand Lodge Yorkshire North and East Ridings.
Welcome to our website whether or not you are a Freemason.
Freemasonry is intended to offer those who are members the opportunity to make themselves better individuals and to demonstrate to others that they are kind, caring and considerate to their families, those in their workplace and all those less fortunate than themselves. This is in a world where often, such laudable qualities are sadly missing.
It is hoped that this site will dispel the myth that we only look after ourselves as you will see that we play an active part in supporting many local and national charities.
A quick visit to the Meeting Places page will show that there is a Lodge holding its meetings near to you – as you would expect of an organisation that is very much a part of the community. If you want to look inside the building – just ask.
To those who are members, the Province hopes to provide further information and guidance; to those of you who are not Freemasons, then we hope that it may give you some insight into our organisation and prove to be of interest.

Freemasonry is open to men of all faiths who are law-abiding, of good character and who acknowledge a belief in a God. Freemasonry is a multi-racial and multi-cultural organisation. It attracts persons of goodwill from all sectors of the community.
Please note that all Brethren, wives and friends are welcome to both the service and the reception afterwards. After the service the R W Provincial Grand Master and Brethren will walk, in regalia, to the reception at the Masonic Hall which is situated at the other end of the High Street. He hopes that Brethren will take the opportunity to join with him in wearing their regalia.
