In 1924 a member gave the freehold of 27 Pembridge Gardens in London's Notting Hill – now a listed building - as a permanent home and headquarters for the Order. A large Temple was built in the garden space behind the house. All our members take pride in maintaining this elegant house and its elaborate Grand Temple in a fitting style by contributing to the Building Restoration Fund. Administratively, Pembridge Gardens also houses the offices of the Grand Master with the Deputy and Assistant Grand Masters, the Secretariat, headed by the Grand Secretary, the Grand Treasurer and her staff, the records department and the Library and Archive. There is a smaller Temple within the building.
The Quarterly Communications of Grand Lodge are held in the building (except the annual Enthronement meeting when a larger venue is required). Some Craft Lodges hold their meetings there as do some of the Higher degrees.
The whole of the Order and all of the Degrees are administered from Headquarters in London.
Craft Lodges are grouped into areas, each area under the care of a senior officer. We have lodges in the following counties of the UK:
Isle of Wight
Tyne and Wear
And overseas in:
Australia, Canada, South Africa, Spain, Zimbabwe.
