    Default Masonic Lodge - Pontefract - December 2018


    PONTEFRACT MASONIC HALL - DECEMBER 2018

    *History:*
    Opened in the early 1900's this was the second Masonic Hall in Pontefract. This was used as a community hall once the Masons moved out in the late 60's. Since then it has had a number of uses including a gym and leisure centre. The only real clue that this was ever a Masonic Hall was the Freemasons Crest on the staircase window which has now been destroyed by vandals but you can still see where it once was.

    I cannot imagine that someone would destroy the Freemasons symbol - that's terrible, still your shots record it well, I would like to have seen a few more but maybe the building was a bit dangerous. Thanks for posting.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
