We are the Lodge of Freemasons for Old Kimboltonians and members of School staff which has met in Kimbolton Castle since 1952
There has been a long association between Kimbolton Castle and Freemasonry. The 4th Duke of Manchester, George, was head of the worldwide Masonic order as Grand Master from 1777 to 1782.
The 7th Duke, William, was Provincial Grand Master for Northamptonshire and Huntingdonshire from 1863 to 1887.
The strong tradition continues through the Old Kimboltonians' Lodge, which was established in 1952 by W. Brown,
W. Ingram and C. Gibbard among others.
Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and benevolent organisations. It teaches self-knowledge through participation in a progression of ceremonies. Members are expected to be of high moral standing and are encouraged to speak openly about Freemasonry.
The Lodge meets four times a year in March, May, September and December on a Friday evening at Kimbolton Castle. We also meet in February in London on a Saturday morning.
After the Lodge meeting we have dinner in one of the state rooms so members can socialise and enjoy each other's company.
Our members are all ages, from their early 20's to their 90's.
It is never too early or too late to join.
