Ardingly College Lodge No 4410

Who We Are

We are a private lodge in English Freemasonry – number 4410 in the register of the United Grand Lodge of England – with strong but not exclusive links to Ardingly College. Many of the members are Old Ardinians. Others have connections through family or friendship.

Our lodge is a London lodge, meaning that our regular meeting place is in London, and we are supervised, Masonically, by the Metropolitan Grand Lodge, which operates as a Province in the UGLE organisation.

We are also members of the Public Schools Lodges Council, along with thirty and more other public school lodges. There is a tradition of visiting between these lodges.

Ardingly College Lodge will celebrate its centenary in 2022, when we will be delighted to host the annual Public Schools Lodges Council Festival at Ardingly College. We anticipate that this will take place on a Saturday during the college’s half-term break in May 2022.

The officers of Ardingly College Lodge for 2019/20 include:

  • Master: Robert Longhurst
  • Secretary: Christopher Wilson
  • Treasurer: John Donegan
  • Almoner: David Blunt
  • Royal Arch representative: Paul Wolff

Communications about lodge business or enquiries from prospective members are best sent to the Secretary, unless of course you already have a personal contact with another member. Members, dependents, and dependents of former members who would like confidential advice about assistance and support should contact the Almoner.
