I have much pleasure in welcoming you to the website of the Masonic Province of Hereford.

Whether you are a long-standing Freemason, someone curious about this Ancient Order or have arrived here by accident, I hope you will find something of interest.

As you explore our site you will discover some of the history of Freemasonry in Herefordshire and how today it supports local and national charities. All the towns of Herefordshire have a Masonic meeting place known as a lodge, so there is one near you.

Anyone joining us will be guaranteed a warm welcome and membership of one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations.

For further information please follow the Contact link at the top of this page.
