Hampshire & Isle of Wight Freemasonry


We have over 9,000 members in 250 Lodges meeting in our centres across Hampshire and Isle of Wight.


Founded in 1767, our members have played a leading role in the history of Hampshire and Isle of Wight and helped shape and support the community of today.

Building Great Friendships • Making a difference

Adapting for today's world


Around the Province we have clubs for our new members called 'Light Blues Clubs'. These enable our members to meet socially outside of their lodges.


We have a growing number of special lodges in which the members have a shared interest outside of Freemasonry. We have created lodges that offer a military interest or appeal to the sporting enthusiast.


Appealing to both student and staff members alike, we have three lodges with links to Universities in the Province: Southampton, Winchester and Portsmouth.

Insight is our popular bi-annual publication featuring news and information about our fundraising activities in the Province and is mailed to all our members. If you would like to read a copy online, CLICK HERE.
