Meridian Lodge

signMeridian Lodge started its Masonic history at “The Mount”, Patterdale Avenue, Blackpool in 1947and after a short period soon realised that the tenancy was insecure.

After diligent searching “Rangemoor” was found which brought with it more worries after all their monies had been spent on Lodge furniture etc. a general meeting was called and all the brethren rallied round and the premises were purchased in 1948.

“Rangemoor” consisted of the main building with coach-house, garage and stables, as outbuildings and as these were substantially built with Accrington brick, so it was decided that with alterations they were a nucleus of a Lodge room. The main building consisted of three large entertaining rooms, caretaker’s room and kitchen etc, and on the first floor there would be ample room for two flats and these would augment the expenses of the Lodge. All the furniture for the house including electric fires, tea services etc were supplied by the brethren and each brother supplied two white cups and saucers and two plates towards the kitchen equipment.

A number of changes have been made over the years but the original frame work still remains the same.

Meridian Lodge Meets on Thursday’s at Rangemore.

The Three Great Principles on which Freemasonry is founded

For centuries Freemasons have followed these three great Principles:

Brotherly Love

Means that every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and will behave with compassion and understanding to his fellows.


From earliest times Freemasons have been taught to help, to the best of their ability, those in distress. without detriment to any who are dependent upon them, and to give their support to outside Charities.


Freemasons strive for truth both in their view of themselves and in their dealings with others. Masonry requires high moral standards and its members endeavour to uphold these principles in their public and private lives.
