Lodge History

Pitsea Lodge 4837 was duly consecrated at the Grecian Temple, Abercorn Rooms, London, 10th September 1926 by the then Provincial Grand Master, Lord Lambourne. The sponsoring Lodge was Priory Lodge 1000. A number of the Founders were members of Priory Lodge, and many of them lived and worked in the Pitsea area.

Some were employed as Butchers and Builders, and it was traditional for Butchers to be closed on Monday afternoons, hence it was a natural decision for the lodge to meet at this time.

The Lodge crest is taken from Pitsea Church, which stood high on a hill overlooking countryside, right across to the Thames Estuary on one side, and on the other, the village of Pitsea. Pitsea Lodge has always maintained two distinctive features of excellence, firstly an abundance of friendly hospitality to all Brethren, especially our visitors, and secondly an undying desire and resolve to support our Charities.

The Lodge continues to have four meetings a year, generally on the first Monday in October, December, March and May. If you would like to know more about joining us, our contact details are below. We very much look
forward to meeting you.
