Someries Lodge No. 5202
in the register of the united grand lodge of England
Someries Lodge Meets at 16:30 on Saturday evenings which most brethren find convenient to fit around their work schedule – some of us make a day out of it. Dates are always the 3rd Saturday in January, February, March, April, October and November. We break for the summer months and in December to accommodate vacation and important family time. Meetings last until about 7p.m and then we formally dine together, at the centre, at what we call the ‘Festive Board’.

remembering the past
Someries Lodge takes its name from Someries Castle – A Scheduled Ancient Monument standing near Luton Town in Bedfordshire. It is one of the first brick buildings in England and was inhabited by Nobility since at least the 1200’s, starting with Sir William Percival de Someries. It passed down his line and then later to the Wenlock family around the 1420’s – who expanded the site. The ancient structure and name of the family who owned it inspired the founders of our lodge to pay tribute to the historic name and honour Luton’s rich heritage through our Lodge – linking it with Luton and establishing something that embodies tradition and longevity. Our banner shows the castle and our Lodge Room contains the same stone used by its builders to decorate the entrance of the castle.
Our founders left a great legacy – the lodge we love today. Keeping the origional traditions going and fondly remembering all those who came before us, inspiring the membership to this day.
making a comitment
Someries members are committed to the same ideals and principles of Freemasonry that we all valued even before joining – and getting together formally and casually is part of that. We take the formal side of Masonic membership very seriously and our work within the Lodge when we close our doors reflects our passion and commitment.
There is a fun side too, and the social aspects of freemasonry are unique in that we share a different kind of bond to any other kind of network or club. Masonry is so much more than that.
At meetings we take care of the business of running the lodge, keeping the brethren informed of events, developments & work the rituals just as they have been for centuries. Outside the temple room we really enjoy ourselves amongst company we trust and deeply respect. One of the teachings of Masonry is that our time with each other on Earth is limited – & to really make it count.
Helping each other & our families is important, so we do what we can to make sure we look after those who are in difficulty or distress, and that doesn’t mean just other Freemasons… but much further afield too, in the community and across the spectrum. Charitable works are a big part of who we are.

part of something bigger
A masonic Lodge is a group of Freemasons together, our members make up and administer our own private lodge. The building itself is the Masonic centre in Luton – within that is our meeting room termed the Temple. We show it the same respect as we would any site of reverence and veneration. The Province of Bedfordshire has many growing Lodges much like ours. The United Grand Lodge of England covers 48 provinces in England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man. There are districts and grand lodges on every continent in every part of the world. ABOUT 6 MILLION BROTHERS TODAY.
