Tercentenary of Freemasonry

For 145 years, there has been a masonic lodge here in Beaminster and many local families have been and still are  actively involved in its charitable works. DSCN0773

The United Grand Lodge of England is celebrating its tercentenary this year so the museum, as part of that celebration, is hosting a summer exhibition in the ‘niche’ highlighting some of the characters, skills and activities of Beaminster Masons over the years.

Their early connections with excellence in craftsmanship can be seeen in some of the exhibits. It is also clear to see that Masons of old, if not today, could certainly dine well and heartily! Can anyone, today, eat that much?
