What is Freemasonry?

An international and widely recognised fraternity, Freemasonry provides its members with the opportunity to embark on an amazing lifelong journey of learning and self discovery and of deepening personal moral strength and compassion. Most Masons find the experience both challenging and rewarding and above all, enormously enjoyable.

Whilst dating back several centuries in this country no one knows exactly when Freemasonry, as we know it today, started.

However, the Craft on which it was founded, that of stonemasons, dates back thousands of years, recent examples of which can be seen everywhere, in our castles, churches, cathedrals, and other historic buildings.

The strict rules and guidelines that were used to train and develop young men into supreme masters of the stonemason's craft are used in Freemasonry, but now, in metaphorical form, to develop the character, values and spirit of the individual.

For Freemasonry expounds the art of self-discovery and continuous self-improvement; of using human virtues as templates, enabling men gradually to fashion, sculpt and craft themselves into better individuals from the inner person and hopefully, to become even more helpful, worthy and useful members of society.
