I do hope that you find our website to be of interest and that it gives you an insight into the Mark and Royal Ark Mariner Orders of Freemasonry in the Province of West Yorkshire.

Our Province consists of 44 Mark Lodges and 21 Royal Ark Mariner Lodges, which enjoy a total membership of over 1400 Mark Master Masons.  These Lodges are distributed throughout an area which stretches from Ripon in the North to Sheffield in the South, and from Goole in the East to Barnoldswick in the West.

You will discover a host of information about the Order of Mark Master Mason on this website, but if your questions are not answered or if you are a Freemason and want to join our ‘friendly degree’ please use the “contact us” page.  Your enquiry will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
