About this Lodge

Roch Valley Lodge No 5120 was consecrated on the 27th November 1929 by Lt. Col. Sir Alan J. Sykes Bart. P.G.D. (Eng) Deputy Provincial Grand Master. This ceremony was attended by nearly 200 brethren. Roch Valley Lodge was formed from the brethren of our mother Lodge, UNISON No 4051. WBro Holden had the distinction of being the first master and uniquely the very first master to be installed in the then, new Masonic Temple, Richard Street, Rochdale. which is still our home today.

WBro Holden was a founder member. He retired to KESWICK in 1969 where he joined GRETA Lodge No 1073. It was through him that a strong Masonic bond was established between the two lodges which exists even to this day.

The quality of our Lodge is measured by the number of eminent brethren past and present that have been recorded in our records since 1929.

We meet on the last Wednesday of the month with the exception of December when we meet on the third Monday due to the Christmas festive period, in addition we always have a Lodge practice evening the Wednesday prior to the Lodge night. We also have a lodge of instruction which meets on the first Wednesday of the month from September to May, the summer recess is taken during the months of June, July, and August when we don’t meet formerly but do enjoy social events together.

Our annual fees are currently £255 per year and are due in September, this can be paid monthly as many members find it easier to budget in this way.

Our festive boards, which are the meals we enjoy after a lodge meeting cost on average £16, these are great value for money and more importantly are great fun too.

The main objective of our Lodge is for every member to enjoy their freemasonry, irrespective of the length of service you have, to make an advancement in Masonic knowledge and meet to have fun and enjoy each other’s company.

We are very proud of our ritual and work together to deliver high standard masonic ceremonies, we feel that this is important to the development of the individual in terms of confidence, esteem and pleasure.

Throughout the full calendar year, we like to have formal and informal events that include our families and friends, this includes our yearly visit in early February to KESWICK where we enjoy the fellowship with our friends at GRETA lodge.
