With the help of W Bro John Austin and W Bro Michael Stafford, both of whom have spent many hours on the project, and with the support of others in the Lodge, W Bro Phillip Benson is collating and preparing photographs of Past Masters of the Athelstan Lodge. These are printed and mounted on the walls in the entrance to the Lodge Rooms.

The work is nowhere near finished. It is difficult to find a specific intact photograph from the 1870s (photography as we know it was only 40 years or so old at that time) and there are gaps, but we thought you might like to see what we have so far.

If you, or someone you know, has a photograph to fill a gap, or if you find a mistake, we would be pleased to hear from you.  Please email the Webmaster, or use the Contact Form.
