True Love & Unity Lodge No.248



There is a record of Freemasonry in Brixham dating back to 1781, when The Lodge of True Love & Unity was formed.  There are very few organisations which are home-logoable to trace their origins back over a period of over 230 years, a reflection perhaps on the original foundations of the order which were laid all those years ago.

The first lodge meeting in Brixham took place “in a private room on Brixham Quay” on 17th October 1781. By 1801 membership had increased and a new lodge room became necessary.  A site was secured at Great Gate (opposite the bottom of Rea Barn Road and no longer in existence) on the spot where the ancient Alms House once stood.

The present Masonic Hall was built in 1886 and is located in Church Hill West, Brixham.

Soiree at Churston Golf Club

This year's Summer Soiree was hosted at Churston Golf Club where Lodge members, partners and friends were treated to a wonderful evening of dining, drinks and great fun (including some off the cuff golf jokes from the Worshipful Master Philip German). A big thank you to the Golf Club staff for the excellent food and friendly and efficient service.  This combined with the lovely view of the golf course contributed to a most enjoyable evening.  It is worth noting that the club is open to non-members for meals and drinks.  A few photos from the evening below:

Lodge Open Day

To celebrate the 300th Anniversary of Freemasonary

It's 300 years since four London lodges met in 1717 to establish the world's first Grand Lodge for freemasons.  Today there are over 6.5 million freemasons worldwide.

True Love & Unity Lodge in Brixham enjoyed a very successful Open Day on Saturday 1st July to celebrate 300 Years of Freemasonry.  We were very pleased with the general response and a big thank you to the many visitors who came along to understand a bit more about Freemasonry and the workings of the Lodge itself.  The photos below show some of the Lodge members hosting the day.
