The Haughfoot Lodge Box - now over 279 years old

 

 

 

Welcome to the Haughfoot Lodge Website

 

The original Haughfoot Lodge is a unique piece of Scottish Masonic History. Founded in the year 1702 it was the World's first Lodge of purely speculative Masons and although The Grand Lodge of Scotland was founded in 1736 the Haughfoot Lodge remained independent during it's whole existence from 1702 - 1763

This Lodge was founded in August 2002 for Masonic educational purposes and to be a continuation of the Historical fact of the original Lodge's existence

There are a number of Research Lodges within Freemasonry these provide an added level of interest to Masonic Students - most deal with Masonic history by presenting papers etc. The Haughfoot Lodge No 1824 was set up as a new Masonic Lodge to examine, study and to exemplify the actual degree workings carried out in the original Haughfoot Lodge (and other Lodges of Freemasons working before 1700). These were the rituals being used before the formation of a Grand Lodge - (England 1717 - Ireland - 1725 - Scotland 1736 )

 

The Lodge has now visited a number of other Lodges to demonstrate the type of working performed by our forebears
