Freemasonry In Brixham
There is a record of Freemasonry in Brixham dating back to 1781, when The Lodge of True Love & Unity was formed. There are very few organisations which are able to trace their origins back over a period of over 240 years, a reflection perhaps on the original foundations of the order which were laid all those years ago.
The first lodge meeting in Brixham took place “in a private room on Brixham Quay” on 17th October 1781. By 1801 membership had increased and a new lodge room became necessary. A site was secured at Great Gate (opposite the bottom of Rea Barn Road and no longer in existence) on the spot where the ancient Alms House once stood.
The present Masonic Hall was built in 1886 and is located in Church Hill West, Brixham.
Galmpton Craft Bee

Please give a call for further information.
