Hornsey Lodge


The Metropolitan Escorting Officers Lodge


Hornsey Lodge meets twice a year on the fourth Wednesday in the months of March (Installation) and November.

All meetings are held at The Great Hall, St Bartholomews Hospital, West Smithfield, London EC1A 7BE (The nearest Underground Station is St Paul’s which is on the Central Line two stops from Holborn and FMH).
We regularly get in excess of fifty members plus their guests attending our meetings in the Great Hall and enjoying drinks and fine dining at the Festive Board thereafter which is also within the Great Hall.

Who is Eligible to Join Hornsey Lodge

To be eligible to join this Past Escorting Craft Officers Lodge you will need to be able to show proof of having been appointed as such and under normal circumstances have completed escorting duties for the Metropolitan Grand Lodge of London. As escorting duties are logged and confirmed by email this should be simple to prove.

It may be that during your year as an Active Escorting Officer that the Pandemic with its resulting lockdowns have prevented you from carrying out your duties. In such circumstances this will not prevent you from joining Hornsey Lodge.

We are very pleased that our membership is growing and currently is in excess of seventy brethren.

In keeping with both UGLE and Metropolitan Grand Lodge we follow Emulation Ritual and in keeping with current practice have later starting times and streamline our meetings.

Our joining fee is £100 together with an annual membership subscription. Dining costs for both members and their guests are ‘at cost’.

Hall Stone Jewel Lodge
Hornsey Lodge which was originally consecrated in 1861 is a Hall Stone Jewel Lodge contributing to Freemason’s Hall as a permanent memorial to those brethren who made the supreme sacrifice during the First World War.
