Lodges meeting in Yatton

Five Lodges meet at The Masonic Hall, High Street, Yatton, Bristol BS49 4DW. From c1890 until the mid 20s the Masonic Hall, then known as Larchmount House was a Private Boarding School for Girls. A fire gutted the building in the early 30's. In 1935 the Brethren of the Lodge of Agriculture decided to purchase the now derelict building and after extensive renovation it was dedicated as a Masonic Hall on March 16th, 1936. During the Second World War the Ground Floor of the building was requisitioned by the Army although Masonic Meetings still took place in the Lodge Room above.
