Who Are We?
A Masonic Lodge is a group of friends who help each other become better citizens through our shared experience of Freemasonry. Membership is open to all thoughtful men of good character and integrity who believe in a Supreme Being. There are no other requirements apart from a willingness to learn and to contribute to the rich life of the lodge. Members come from all walks of life and all types of ethnic, social, economic and educational backgrounds, occupations and religions. Under The United Grand Lodge of England, Lodges are organised into county areas called Provinces. In The Province of Berkshire there are 96 Lodges. Portcullis Lodge is one of three Lodges meeting and working in Wallingford. Every Lodge has its own schedule of meetings at which the members and their guests advance their knowledge of Freemasonry and enjoy each other's company by sharing a meal together. Portcullis is a Craft Lodge working Emulation ceremonies.
The United Grand Lodge of England publishes its rules, known as the 'Book of Constitutions'. It likewise publishes lists of lodges and their meeting places. These publications are in the public domain and can be downloaded or purchased from the United Grand Lodge in London.
Portcullis Lodge was founded in 1948 and is a medium sized Lodge having 35 members coming from many different walks of life, trades and professions and ranging in age from early thirties upwards. We meet seven times a year at the Wallingford Masonic Hall. If you are a mason in good standing, you will be made welcome as a visitor to our Lodge. Please contact our secretary to make the usual arrangements. If you are not already a Mason, we have more information here-in.
