About Freemasonry

Throughout 300 years of heritage and history, members have come from all walks of life and each with their own unique story to tell for why they became a Freemason.
As one of the oldest social and charitable organisations in the world, we have a thriving community of approximately 175,000 members throughout England and Wales, as well as Districts overseas.

Freemasons use four key values to help define their path through life: Integrity, Friendship, Respect, and Service. Service may involve volunteering or charitable giving.

Membership is open to people from all backgrounds and our aim is to empower members to be the best they can be.
