Lodge History

St Clements Lodge No 2442 - a short history

St Clements Lodge was consecrated at the Bell Hotel, Leigh on Sea on Saturday 10th November 1892 by the Right Honourable Lord Brooke R.W.P.G.M. assisted by V.W. Bro. F.  A. Philbrick Q.C. Grand Reg. D.P.G.M. followed by a banquet at the Royal Hotel, Southend.  The London, Tilbury & Southend Railway Co. laid on a special train to convey the Brethren from Leigh to Southend for dinner.

Our Lodge is named after St Clements Church in Leigh which is represented in our Lodge crest and was the 33rd Lodge in the Provence of Essex. Most of the members were gentlemen shopkeepers of Southend and residents of the new Leigh at the top of the hill.

On 10th February 1900 the Lodge changed its meeting place to the Grand Hotel, Leigh on Sea and then again on 12th February 1944 to the Queens Hotel, Westcliff on Sea.  It moved once more on 15th February 1967 to the Memorial Temple, Southend on Sea where it remained until 2006 before moving to Saxon rong>

We are looking forward to our 125 year anniversary in 2017 and being a very friendly and welcoming Lodge expect a large number of other Lodge Brethren to attend to help us celebrate this achievement.
