About Crawley Lodge

Crawley Lodge was Consecrated at the Sussex Masonic Temple, Brighton on the 24th March 1952. There were in excess of 247 Masons in attendance. The ceremony was performed by The R.W. Provincial Grand Master the V.Rev. A.T.O. Naylor, DSO, OBE, and the rest of the Provincial Officers. The festive board consisted of an eight course meal including wine and music performed by a trio of musicians for a princely sum of £1.25 per person.

The Crawley Lodge meetings were held at the Ifield Golf and Country Club, Ifield, Crawley, Sussex, until 1972, when the meeting place was changed to The Crawley Club, Hazeldene, Brighton  Road, Crawley, and soon afterwards to St. Margaretís Hall, Ifield, Crawley, where they meet to this day.
