Walsingham Lodge

Who we are

We are a small lodge of West Kent freemasons who are lucky enough to meet at the Masonic Hall in Wilmington near Dartford. The hall was purpose built in the 1880s and this Victorian building helps to enhances the atmosphere of our meetings.

The Walsingham lodge meetings are known for their friendly nature and lodge members consider that, for the success of the lodge and the good of freemasonry in general, learning the Craft of Freemasonry to a high standard and supporting the Lodge charities are key to making good personal progress.

When we meet

We are called a summer lodge because the formal meetings of the members are held around the summer period four times a year on the first Saturday in:-

May July September November

Our meetings generally start at between 2.0 and 3.0 o'clock. Following the meeting we have a meal or what we call a festive board at around 6:30 and we finish between 8.30pm and 9.30pm in the evening. You can find out more about a typical lodge meeting here
