Provincial Grand Lodge of Dorset

The official website of Dorset Freemasonry

Welcome to St Aldhelm's Lodge

We were constituted way back in 1895 and are based in Branksome which is a suburb of the lovely Dorset town of Poole with its port and second largest natural harbour in the World. Our Masonic Hall has one of the most beautiful lodge rooms with its carved pews and seats as well as housing the Dorset Provincial Museum.

We have members both young and old from all walks of life and from a number different countries.

We are a friendly and welcoming Lodge and we would love to hear from you if you are interested in Freemasonry or are already a mason and would like to visit us.

We meet on the Second Tuesday of every month at 18:30 from October through to June inclusive at Branksome Masonic Hall, 57 Ashley Road, Parkstone, Poole.

During Steve Dunster's term as WM last year, the lodge raised £2184 which he was delighted to present to Victoria School. The money will go towards new equipment for their play area which is in need of modernisation. The school in Lindsay Road, Branksome, caters for children between the ages of 9 and 14 with disabilities which prevent them from taking part in normal activities. more...
