A message from the Provincial Grand Master

As Provincial Grand Master for Wiltshire I welcome you to the website of Wiltshire Freemasonry and hope you have an informative and enjoyable visit.

From the information and links contained within this web site, you will see we are an open society with nothing to hide; indeed nearly all of the information contained in these pages is in the public domain and has been for many years.

Freemason's meetings and events are minuted and recorded, and I am delighted to confirm that the records of many Wiltshire Lodges have been deposited in the public archives of the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre in Chippenham where they are available for viewing.

Ladies can 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 believe should be ever present in our members - a care and concern for others, whether Freemasons or not, lawful actions, trustworthiness and good citizenship.

We encourage our members to publicise and be proud of their membership and our Masonic Halls hold open days to encourage members of the public and heritage and history societies to discover for themselves our rich traditions.

I hope you enjoy your visit to our website and if you are interested in discovering more about Freemasonry, please do contact us.  We want to hear from you.
