St Laurence Lodge is the oldest Lodge in Pudsey, having been consecrated in December 1889. It has met regularly in the town ever since.

The lodge recently came in possession of a copy of the Oration, delivered at the Consecration by the Provincial Grand Master R.W.Bro. T.W. Tew, PGD.  You can read it by clicking Here.

The Lodge originally met met at the New Inn (later called the Park Hotel) in Church Lane, until October 1901 when it moved across the road to two cottages that had been adapted for Masonic use. Over the years there have been a number of alterations to the Masonic Hall, Church Lane, with the last improvements being completed in 2010.
