CELEBRATING 300 YEARS OF MASONIC HISTORY 1717 – 2017

In 1717 four London lodges came together on June 24th, (birthday of St John the Baptist), at The Goose & Gridiron Ale-house in St. Paul’s Churchyard, to form the first Grand Lodge. Since then many men have become Freemasons and in England alone over 9,500 lodges have been constituted, and some have survived as long as the Grand Lodge itself.
