- Ardingly College
is the school which we sprang from. It is an English public
school just south of the village of Ardingly, in
Sussex. It was founded in 1858 by Nathaniel Woodard, a Victorian
with a drive to improve educational opportunity, and a brilliant
fund-raiser. Woodard established Ardingly 'for the sons of poor
after Lancing and Hurstpierpoint.
- The United Grand Lodge of
England (UGLE) is the organisation that supervises regular
Freemasonry in England.
- The Metropolitan Grand Lodge
(MetGL) is the body that runs Freemasonry in London. Ardingly
College Lodge is a London lodge, part of MetGL, and as such normally meets in London,
except when, by dispensation, we hold our summer meeting at the school
on OAs day. The MetGL web pages give a useful summary of what
Freemasonry is all about, and answer many questions.
