The Lodge of Industry 48
About Us
The oldest Freemasonic Lodge in the province of Durham.

Mission Statement

‘Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth’

What We Believe

A brief overview of just some of our core values.

Brotherly Love 

Every true mason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and understanding

Relief

Freemasons are taught to practice charity and to care, not only for their own but for their community, both by charitable giving and voluntary efforts. 

Truth

Freemasons are taught to strive for truth requiring high moral standards and aiming to achieve them in their own lives. 

Society

Freemasonry demands from its members a respect for the law of the country in which a man works and lives. Its principles do not in anyways conflict in its members duties as citizens but should strengthen them in fullfilling their public and private responsibilities.
