Contact us at: 1146@dorsetfreemasonry.info

We have been meeting in Swanage for over 150 years, we were consecrated in 1867, two of our Founders were the well known Swanage benefactors John Mowlem and his nephew George Burt, who at the time were members of Old Dundee Lodge No.18.

We first met in the Mowlem Institute and in 1917 moved to our present building, the old Gas and Water Company offices in Marshall Row. We have recently refurbished the interior, it has it's own fully licensed Bar and catering facilities, which are well used for our Lodge Meetings and Social Events etc.. After each Lodge ceremony we have a good quality dinner, where drinks are consumed and Toasts made to the Queen, senior masons and visitors etc.,in a warm friendly atmosphere with plenty of fun and banter.

Our membership comprises of men from all walks of life, and various occupations and ages who all mix well. We endeavour to deliver a high standard of ritual for the benefit of our Candidates, to uphold the ancient traditions and established values of Freemasonry but also to benefit from the technology, attitudes and visions of the 21st Century. We also raise funds for local charities chosen by the Master each year, as well as contributing to the Masonic Charity.

DO YOU WANT TO BECOME A FREEMASON? We welcome all good men of integrity and good morals, of every religious faith, sect, creed and ethnicity.
ARE YOU ALREADY A FREEMASON? Unattached, new to this area or just visiting? A warm welcome awaits you in DeMoulham Lodge.

We meet on the 3rd Monday of every month except July and August at 6-30pm apart from June Installation when we meet at 4-45pm.
CAR PARKING is in the adjacent hill of Park Road or the Downs Car Park, above the pier, with a short level walk to the Lodge.

The WM decided to conduct a demonstration 2nd Degree Ceremony and the DC asked for a volunteer Candidate. None was forthcoming, so the DC offered himself as Candidate, this was accepted by the WM.
