FREEMASONRY LODGES IN MELTON MOWBRAY
There are three Freemasonry Craft Lodges in Melton Mowbray, the oldest of which was formed in 1866, and the youngest is The Framland Hundred Lodge which was formed in 1992 by a number of members from the other two Lodges. The Lodge takes its name from The Framland which was a Hundred in the North-East Leicestershire, which roughly corresponded to today's Borough of Melton. The name Framland was recorded in the Domesday Book as one of Leicestershire's four Wapentakes and remains in use today as a Deanery of the Diocese of Leicester in the Church of England which includes St. Mary's Church in Melton Mowbray.
Freemasonary is one of the major contributors to many local and UK charities with all monies being generated by Lodge members as there is no public fund raising. There have been many overseas charities which have also benefited over the years, particularly in times of major disasters. Alongside the four major Masonic charities, the Lodges which meet in Melton Mowbray have contributed to a number of local charities in and around the district.
