Lodge Phoenix No. 11

Lodge Phoenix No.11 in the Province of Gloucestershire is a new Lodge working in the historic town of Berkeley.

The Lodge name lends itself to the motto: “Working towards Perfection”.

Lodge Phoenix No. 11 was Consecrated, Constituted and Warranted on 8th May 2016 in the historic town of Berkeley, Gloucestershire.

On the hottest day of the year so far the Grand Lodge Consecrating Officers performed the ancient ceremony of Consecrating, Constituting and Warranting the new Lodge. We were joined by visitors from across the country. This was then followed by the first meeting of Lodge Phoenix at which a new Candidate was initiated.

The Lodge meets in the shadow of Berkeley Castle which has the distinction of both being the the oldest home in Britain to be continuously owned and occupied by the same family (nearly eight hundred years) and the place where King Edward II was brutally murdered in 1327.  The Temple has been used for Freemasonry since 1802.

The proceedings were followed, as always, by a superb meal. The perfect end to an excellent day.  

The Lodge meets six times a year. We have a meal after every meeting and a social event twice a year, after installation and at Christmas.

Enquiries from interested candidates for Freemasonry are welcome. Freemasons (men and women) may also apply to join.
