Estune Lodge was founded in May 1949, when the founding members adopted the name of what the Anglo-Saxon people used for what we now know as Long Ashton – ‘Estune’.
On average 60 – 70 members attend meetings. These are of all ages, young and old, and from widely diverse backgrounds and interests. Generally members live in Somerset and Bristol, but some live much further afield.
The lodge activities cover far more than only formal meetings. Members have a popular calendar of social and charitable events, sharing enjoyment and fellowship with friends and partners – all in line with Masonic principles. If you would like to join the lodge, please contact the secretary, whose email address is above.
