Here you will find a wealth of information relating to The Masonic Hall in Buxton, and a little about the town and local facilities.
The Masonic Hall is located at:
Buxton Masonic Hall,
The Old Court House,
Buxton. SK17 6AY
Masonic use focuses on three Lodges that meet here:
Buxton, straddling the river Wye, sits amid the A6 (Derby to Stockport), A53 (Leek to Buxton) and the A515 (Ashbourne to Buxton) trunk roads, about twenty five miles East of the M6. The Old Court House is at the junction of George Street (a No-Through Road) and The Square. Vehicular access therefore, is best achieved by heading South from St. Johns Road (A53), about fifty yards from the roundabout where the A53 joins the A515. The Lodge Room is above The Old Court House Coffee & Wine Bar, up a flight of steps adjacent to Bar Barsserie. There isn’t a car park at the Old Court House, and local on-street parking is very limited.
