Masonic use focuses on three Lodges that meet here:
Bakewell, built largely on the West bank of the river Wye, sits astride the A6 (Derby to Buxton) and the A619 (Bakewell to Chesterfield) trunk roads, about eighteen miles west of the M1. Anchor Square (A619), runs almost North/South, forming the ‘top half’ of a small circular one-way-system with Bridge Street. The Lodge Room, residing on the first floor of the Council Chambers at the Town Hall is accessed via a pair of red doors (not the red gates) opposite the Royal Mail Delivery Office, adjacent to Wheatsheaf Pub (under restoration) on the opposing pavement. There isn’t a car park at the Town Hall, and the on-street parking is very restrictive.
Anchor Square is a continuation of Rutland Square (neither of which appear to be named) and is quickly access by heading East from the obvious roundabout at the junction of the A6 and the A619 in the heart of the Town. When heading West however, from Chesterfield, the A619 becomes Bridge Street on passing over the river Wye. It is easier to remain on the ‘lower half’ of the circular one-way system until the A6 roundabout is reached, where a simple U-turn can be effected and the Town Hall approached as if navigating form the Derby-Buxton direction.

The Town Hall has no parking and very limited street parking, but there are two local public pay & display car parks. Market street (about sixty cars), accessed from Bridge Street (the ‘lower half’ of the A619 circular one-way system), and Granby Road, accessed from the A6 about fifty yards prior to the A619 roundabout in the town centre. Both are a couple of minutes walk from the Town Hall.
There are two fuel stations (Murco and Total) almost opposite each other astride the A6 and a couple of hundred yards on the Derby (South) side of he A619 roundabout in the town centre.
Turning right out of the Town Hall a few yards, to the junction of Anchor Square, Rutland Square there are:
