Welcome to the Royal Somerset Lodge

North ParadeThe Royal Somerset Lodge, No.973, the oldest Masonic Lodge in Frome. The Lodge dates back to 1863, and has a long and distinguished history. The members of the lodge had to wait nearly 30 years until they were able to build their own Masonic hall in North Parade, Frome. The site was formerly garden ground on the opposite side of the road to the Literary and Scientific Club, and was sold to the Lodge by Brother A.C.Hayman.

What is Freemasonry

Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join. For some, it’s about making new friends and acquaintances. For others it’s about being able to help deserving causes – making a contribution to family and society. But for most, it is an enjoyable hobby.

Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. It teaches self-knowledge through participation in a progression of ceremonies. Members are expected to be of high moral standing and are encouraged to speak openly about Freemasonry. Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its principles (moral lessons and self-knowledge) by a series of ritual dramas – a progression of allegorical two-part plays which are learnt by heart and performed within each Lodge – which follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides.

Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: its values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount but, importantly, Freemasonry also teaches concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.
