Is freemasonry for me?

These pages contain the history of Palatine Lodge since 1893, details of the events we hold, a frequently asked questions page and other information which we hope you will find of interest.

We are always looking for new members over the age of 21 and of good standing within the community. Freemasonry is not for everyone, but the starting point is here, and if you would like to talk to a real person rather than read a web page, our contact information is here.
