Talk: Llannerch Lodge – The True Masonic Church

This evening I went along to Llannerch Lodge to give a talk under the banner of the North Wales Association of Masonic Study!

This was the first time I had given this talk, which was “The True Masonic Church

This was an interesting evening since Llannerch Lodge is my mother Lodge, and I have not been back to visit in a long while. So it was nice to be asked to attend to give a talk.

​St Edmund’s Church in Rochdale, is regarded as one of the finest but least known gems of ecclesiastical architecture in the country. Commissioned by the industrialist and banker Albert Hudson Royds, its interior is packed with Masonic symbolism.

The specific spark that initiated St Edmund’s might have come when on August 10, 1869, the Provincial Grand Lodge convened in the Chapter House of Worcester Cathedral to march in procession to the Cathedral where the new Masonic window that had been built in the north transept was unveiled. On this occasion, Albert Royds (who was already a member of the Supreme Council, 33rd Degree) proclaimed: “I ask you to accept this gift from the brethren of our ancient Craft and sometimes, when you look upon its mellowed light, may you be induced to say, ‘O, wonderful Masons!’”.
