About this Lodge

Horton Lodge is number 8528 with the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE).  It received its warrant  on 12th September 1973 and was consecrated on 18th January 1974.  There were 19 members originally that formed the lodge as founding member, 9 of which were previous past masters of other lodges.  None of the founding members are current members of the lodge in 2021.

Horton Lodge has a daughter lodge, Tonge Hall No. 8763, which received its warrant on 9th February 1977 and was consecrated on 18th May 1977.  This is a lodge that was formed by members of Horton Lodge as a new lodge in its own right.

Since 1974 there have been 32 Worshipful Masters of the Lodge, with many remaining as current members of the lodge as Past Masters. Over the years there has been several members who have been Worshipful Master 2 or 3 times, and one member WBro Jimmy Burns who was Worshipful Master of the Lodge for 3 years in a row.  The current Worshipful Master is Bro Laurence Jones, who is in his second year as Worshipful Master in 2021/2022 due to the Covid 19 virus pandemic.

Horton Lodge meets 7 times a year on the first Tuesday of the month between October and April the following year at Middleton Masonic Hall, Manchester Old Road, Middleton, Manchester, M24 4DY.   This is a formal masonic meeting, where brethren who are members of Horton Lodge or masonic guests, conduct the business of the lodge and appropriate masonic ceremonies.  Attendees wear a dark suit, with white shirt and black tie, though some wear their Provincial Tie or maybe the current Festival Tie.

After each masonic meeting the lodge hosts as social board, which is a formal meal where members and visiting masonic brethren who have attended the masonic meeting are invited to get together for a friendly and less formal social occasion.
