Becoming a Freemason

Candidates for Freemasonry must be at least 21 years of age and have a belief in a Supreme Being. The members of the Paviors Lodge belong to the Worshipful Company of Paviors and other Livery Companies. There are thousands of Lodges across the UK and the world which draw their membership from every walk of life.

Please download the booklet on the right to find more about Freemasonry. Further information is available on the United Grand Lodge of England’s website

In parallel with the UGLE, there are also women-only Lodges. The Order of Women Freemasons is the oldest and largest masonic organisation for women in the UK and works on the lines of regular male Freemasonry.

The Lodge would be pleased to hear from anyone who is interested in joining or simply finding out more about Freemasonry.
