Liverpool's (UK) Masonic Hall


Liverpool, England's Masonic Hall is promoting public tours of its lodge rooms, as part of a city-wide effort to improve tourism and to draw a cruise ship embarkation terminal.

Portions of the Hall date to 1858, and it was expanded in 1874 and 1932.

The object is to make the facility more a part of the community. Liverpool's universities use the lodge rooms (there are six) for students to present their papers, and the hall is exploring opening regularly for public tea service.

The Liverpool Daily Post has put up a gallery of photos here.

Interesting that they show a Holy Royal Arch chapter setup rather than a typical lodge temple. When I was exalted, the companions made a very big thing about my not being allowed to see the chapter room setup until after the blindfold was removed.
