A Brief Introduction to Us

Welcome to the Colne Valley Lodge No. 1645 website

Colne Valley Lodge is No 1645 on the roll of The United Grand Lodge of Freemasons in England. Every Lodge is given a number, the lower the number, the older the lodge.

Our Lodge is based in Slaithwaite, in the Colne Valley and is one of 18 Lodges in the Huddersfield district, which itself is part of the Province of Yorkshire, West Riding.

The Colne Valley Lodge is a Masonic Lodge under the jurisdiction of The United Grand Lodge of England and of The Masonic Province of Yorkshire, West Riding.

Thinking of becoming a Freemason?

There are 250,000 Freemasons belonging to 8,000 Lodges throughout England and Wales, and districts overseas.

Worldwide, the figure rises to six million Freemasons, all with their own special reasons why they enjoy Freemasonry. For some, its about making new friends and acquaintances. For others, it's being able to help deserving causes - making a contribution to family and society. But for most, it is simply an enjoyable hobby.

Every Freemason has his own reason for joining. What's yours?
