Where To Find Us
Terms & Conditions
A message from the Master
is a great pleasure and privilege to welcome you to the website of the
The Lodge of Melrose St. John No. 1² to which I hope you find
interesting and informative.
Our Antient Lodge has a long and
distinguished history which is reputed to be one of the oldest Masonic
Lodges in Scotland if not "The Oldest" with connections to the building
of Melrose Abbey in 1136.
Being the RWM of the Lodge I
can assure any Brother who wishes to visit the Lodge a very warm
welcome. Thank you for visiting the website and please visit
Bro. James Thom - RWM.
History Book Relaunched
years ago, the late Bro. Drummond took to his typewriter , used his
knowledge and research to write a book about the history of our Lodge.
This was done in his own spare time at his own expense and proved
to be very popular. A limited number of copies were produced and
eventually stocks became depleted.
Our Lodge is reputed
to be one of the Oldest Masonic Lodges in Scotland, if not "The"
Oldest. The Brethren thought it was important that this history was
able to be shared again and set to work to update and reproduce Bro.
We are pleased to announce that a professionally
produced update of the book is now available giving an insight to the
history of our Antient Lodge as well as some of the characters that
were members. It is an essential read for anyone who has a
special interest in Masonic History.
Copies of the book are available from the Lodge at a cost of £10
