Freemasons of the Province of Yorkshire, West Riding

“Yorkshire - A Country within a County!” - The geographical extent and diversity of our Masonic Province means that this description is aptly applied to our Province.

Our Province extends from Ripon in the North to Sheffield in the South, Bentham in the West to Goole in the East. Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Halifax and Huddersfield all have significant Masonic Centres. Additionally, many other Towns, and communities offer a rich diversity of a membership profile including all social and cultural groups.

Our Province consists of over 200 Craft Lodges and 80 Royal Arch Chapters with in excess of 7,000 Brethren.

This Website is provided primarily for our Brethren, their families and friends to access information regarding Masonic activities in the Province. It is also available to anyone with an interest in our ancient Order providing essential information about our values, objectives, and the principles that we believe are important in living our lives as loyal, caring and responsible citizens within all of our Communities.
