Welcome to the Provincial Grand Lodge of Wiltshire
As Provincial Grand Master for Wiltshire I welcome you to the web site of Wiltshire Freemasonry and hope you have an informative and enjoyable visit.
As you can gather from the information and links contained within this web site, we are very much an open society with nothing to hide; indeed nearly all the information contained in these pages has been in the public domain for many years. Freemason's meetings and events have been minuted and recorded for many years; I am delighted to confirm that the records of many Wiltshire Lodges have been deposited in the archives of the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre in Chippenham and these are available for public viewing.
In principle, a man of any religion, which accepts the existence of God, can become a Freemason if he is believed to be honest, trustworthy and law abiding
Ladies can also become Freemasons but they have independent organisations. Information regarding these organisations can be obtained by telephoning 020 7723 9526 and/or 020 7229 2368.
Our ceremonies date back over several centuries and may seem strange but they are designed to promote and encourage the qualities we have always sought to cultivate in our members a care and concern for others, whether Freemasons or not, lawful actions, trustworthiness and good citizenship.
We are encouraged to publicise and be proud of our membership.
I have enjoyed the pleasure and good fellowship of Freemasonry for some thirty five years and I would recommend it to all men of good faith.
