Albert Hudson Royds and St. Edmunds Masonic Church

Freemasonry Today has a brief article about Albert Hudson Royds, the Freemason behind St. Edmund's Church in Rochdale, England, the only known church anywhere dedicated to Freemasonry. The architectural details (look at the lectern) contain much true Masonic symbolism, unlike Rosslyn cathedral. The church has been closed for several years and is in a Muslim community now, so it is endangered. It may not be around long, even though it has been listed as an historical place. There is a fund to save the church at: http://www.visitchurches.org.uk/SaveStEdmunds/.
