    The Maidenhead Lodge No 5986

Maidenhead Lodge meets five times a year on the second Monday of January (installation meeting) March, May, September and November. Meetings happen at the Berkshire Masonic Centre at Sindlesham.

World War II was coming to an end, many men would be returning from the Services to resume their peacetime life in the Maidenhead area and the town was about to grow in size.  Yet there were only two Masonic Lodges in the area, and these had large memberships meaning, that to become Master would take very many years. It was realised that another Lodge was required in the Maidenhead area, and in 1945 The Maidenhead Lodge was Consecrated. The crest chosen for the Lodge is based on the town crest, but if you compare the two, you will note that our female has been glamourised!

Between 1952 and 1968, the town population almost doubled with the building of residential properties in Cox Green, Norden Farm, Furze Platt and other areas.  This, together with the camaraderie which men missed from their Service Days, fully justified the new Maidenhead Lodge.

We have always kept our numbers low, and pride ourselves on our very friendly atmosphere at all our Lodge meetings. We all enjoy them! We do not seek to gain publicity, such that we tend to keep any assistance we give to the community, both factual and financial, an entirely private matter. In 2019 we remember the 75th anniversary of the Allied Invasion of Europe – D Day 6th June 1944.   On 7th June 1944, the Petition to Grand Lodge to form a new Lodge called “The Maidenhead Lodge” was signed!  Absolutely no connection!!
