Welcome to the Leyland Group

Group_Chairman_2016Welcome to the Leyland & District Group of lodges and chapters’ web site and I guarantee you a very friendly welcome should you wish to visit us in person.

The Group is a happy and vibrant organisation with many varied activities taking place all year round and is one of 22 groups within the Masonic Province of West Lancashire. The Province of West Lancashire is the largest province under the Grand Lodge of England.

Freemasonry first began to be practised in Leyland when Carnarvon Lodge No 2376 was consecrated on 12 December 1890 at the Infants’ School, Leyland. Now, all lodges within the group, with the exception of Old Huttonian Lodge (the lodge for ex-pupils of HuttonGrammar School) now meet at the new Masonic Hall, WellingtonPark.

WellingtonPark is Leyland’s splendid Masonic Hall.  It is both a purpose-built Masonic centre and a hotel venue of the highest quality for social events whether Masonic or not.  The facility is shared by all the population of the Leyland area and is seen as a focal point for community gatherings and business seminars.

On this website you will find information relating to Freemasonry, details of the lodges and chapters, contact details, articles on Masonic and social events and links to much more information including the latest social events presented by Wellington Park.

If you are a non mason and would like to speak with someone, simply move your pointer over the ‘Contact Us’ menu and select the relevant page for a group representatives details.  Alternatively, please feel free to use the menus at the top of the page to navigate your way around the site and please, do visit us and this site again.

These pages are updated regularly and if you have any suggestions or news items and social events that you would like to be included on our website, please forward them to the webmaster@leylandmasonic.org.
