Welcome to Freemasonry in Yorkshire, West Riding
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Masonic Province of Yorkshire West Riding’s Website.
Freemasonry has been active in our region for over 200 years, and we currently approaching 6,000 members, ranging in age from their late teens to their late 90s, and from all walks of life, meeting in almost 200 Lodges across South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and parts of North and East Yorkshire.
The first Lodges often met in public houses, and throughout our Province masonic meeting places include purpose-built venues, converted mansions, hotels and community halls.
To be a Freemason, members must believe in a “Supreme Being,”i.e. The God of their Faith, and I’m delighted to say that we have members from every Faith.

Provincial Grand Master
