Exploring the dark corridors

The suitable setting of Cheltenham’s low-lit dining room added just the right atmosphere to an illustrated presentation, outlining the recently re-researched history of the many masonic connections to Gloucester Cathedral.  Accepting an invitation to Lodge of St Paul to deliver this new version, Dick Smith drew not only on widely-known evidence, but also revealed some long-forgotten facts, and disclosed a few new ones.  There’s an added masonic gem to add to those creepy cloisters used in the Harry Potter films.  But he was also able to read from a fascinating contemporary report of the unveiling of the reredos in 1873; found tucked amongst ancient Knights Templar certificates hidden in a picture frame in Somerset, and seeing the light of day again only two weeks ago.

Anyone wishing to book this presentation on Gloucester Cathedral for a lodge or chapter evening, simply contact Dick Smith . . . details in the Yearbook. Remember the yearbook is available online in our members area, if you are a Gloucestershire freemason and haven’t yet signed up you can do so here.

We thank The Lodge of St Paul and Dick Smith for sharing the Photo and Article
