Lodge Centenary 21st September 2028

Welcome to the Michelham Priory Lodge

The Michelham Priory Lodge (MPL) is a Freemasons Lodge located in the Sussex village of Herstmonceux

We are a friendly and welcoming lodge with a diverse mix of members from across a wide variety of interests.

New and joining members are very welcome, please contact the Lodge Secretary.

Masonic Square and Compasses


We have 6 regular meetings a year on the third Thursday of January, March, April, May, October and November.
We also meet for rehearsals on a Wednesday evening between September and May.



We have an active and enthusiastic social committee who regularly organise social events throughout the year. Although these often involve lunch or dinner, we try to combine eating out with visits to places of interest.

Here’s a list of this year’s social events. 

The main aim we strive to achieve from our social functions is to have fun, but we also use some events to raise money for our supported charities.


The member's partners and the widows of members often meet socially for dinner, which is organised independently of the MPL social events. "Partners that dine" is very popular.


Would you like to join us?

If you live or work in Herstmonceux, or in one of the nearby towns and villages and you want to join us, then contact our secretary, who would be delighted to hear from you.

If you're still not sure, then you can discover more from our Join us page.


The Michelham Priory Lodge

The Michelham Priory Lodge (MPL) was originally founded in Hailsham in 1928 and relocated to Herstmonceux in 1961 after purchasing the old Castle Playhouse in the heart of the village. If you would like to know more please look at our other website pages or contact the Lodge Secretary.

Thank you for your interest in us.
