Home About Us What Is Freemasonry? Resident Units Radlett Cork Lodge Room Hire Links

Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, charitable and fraternal organisations. It is open to men of good reputation, irrespective of race or creed, and who hold a belief in a Supreme Being, by whatever name He is known to them; an essential qualification for admission and continued membership. Freemasonry teaches moral lessons and self-knowledge, through participation in a progression of allegorical two-part plays, which are learnt by heart and performed within each Lodge.

Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join; for some, it’s about making new friends and acquaintances; for others it’s about being able to help deserving causes, but fundamentally, Freemasonry is not a vehicle for self promotion or preferment. Freemasonry offers its members an approach to life which seeks to reinforce thoughtfulness for others, kindness in the community, honesty in business, courtesy in society, and fairness in all things. Freemasonry also teaches and practises concern for people, care for the less fortunate, help for those in need, and to regard the interests of the family as paramount.

Above all, Freemasonry is a most enjoyable hobby.

Yes there are women Freemasons.

Following the example of medieval stonemasons, membership of the United Grand Lodge of England is, and has always been available to men only. Similarly, there are two separate Grand Lodges which are specifically for women only:

The Order of Women Freemasons - www.owf.org.uk

Honourable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons - www.hfaf.org
