Welcome to Freemasonry in Derbyshire

This site is for Freemasons, the public in general and those who may wish to join Freemasonry in Derbyshire.

Freemasonry is very much part of the community in Derbyshire.  We have seventy-four Masonic Lodges meeting in: Alfreton, Ashbourne, Bakewell,  Belper, Burton-on-Trent, Buxton, Chesterfield, Derby, Duffield, Dore, Glossop (Hague Street), Glossop (Henry Street), Ilkeston, Long Eaton, New Mills, Ripley and Wirksworth.

The purpose of this site is threefold:

  • To provide a complete and accurate source of up-to-date information about Craft Freemasonry in the Province of Derbyshire
  • To provide a resource through which our members can find out about and engage in our events and activities
  • To inform members of the public about Freemasonry in Derbyshire.

Open and regular communication of information and ideas is key to my vision for Derbyshire to be a strong and growing Province.  I want Derbyshire Freemasonry to provide a good Masonic education and experience for its members and to engage with its various local communities.

I invite Derbyshire Freemasons to visit the site regularly.  It reflects the key areas of development that I have identified within Derbyshire.  I have asked those who are leading in those areas to keep the rest of us up-to-date with news and developments.  Please use it as your first source of information and contribute to the sharing of knowledge and ideas.

You can visit the “News & events” page to keep up to date with what is happening, and to make comments.  The items in the side bar to the right of every page also contain current and relevant information.  If you subscribe to the site you will receive news and events alerts by email as they happen.

All members of the Province are welcome to contribute to the site.  This can be by:

  • Sending event information and news articles & photographs to
  • Using the comment forms on the site’s pages
  • Following our Twitter account, @DerbysCraftPGL

To those who are not Freemasons, please feel free to look around the site. All information is open and accessible. There are no closed or hidden areas.   As Freemasons we stand for integrity, kindness, honesty & fairness and we would like to hear from those who share our values.  The top menu is designed to answer key questions that you might have about us.  If you like what you see, want to know more or just wish to make contact, please use the “Contact us” button.  We welcome your enquiry and some one will get back to you very soon.

Finally, I welcome any feedback about the website from members and non-members alike.  If you have comments, ideas or suggestions I, and the members of my communications team, would like to receive them.  We look forward to hearing from you.
