About Us

Lodge Bonhill and Alexandria St. Andrews Royal Arch Number 321 was established in February 1826. An important element in creating the lodge was that the nearest lodge to Bonhill was in Renton (Leven St John 170) on the other side of the river Leven and a few miles downriver. The river was a fast flowing one and the ferry crossing to Alexandria was a risky way of crossing.

In due course a bridge was built to replace the ferry and eventually the lodge got premises in the town hall building which is just on the Alexandria side of the bridge. Thus the lodge name now includes both Bonhill and Alexandria

The lodge moved to its current premises in 1921 when the Ewing Gilmour Institute for girls became available. The building had been erected in the period around 1890 at a cost of about £12,000. The lodge got it for £4,000, thanks to the efforts of our members of the time.

During WW2 the War Department took over the building for a short while then returned it to the lodge. It was used after the Clydebank blitz to provide accommodation for some of those bombed out of their houses.

What is Freemasonry?

The Grand Lodge of Scotland describes the organisation in this way:

‘Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its precepts by a series of ritual dramas, which follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides. The essential qualification for admission into and continuing membership is a belief in a Supreme Being. Membership is open to men of any race or religion who can fulfill this essential qualification and who are of good repute. Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a substitute for religion. The one essential qualification means that Freemasonry is open to men of many religions and it expects and encourages them to continue to follow their own faith. It is not permitted for Freemasons to debate these subjects at Masonic meetings, as it is not expected that an individual should have to justify their own personal religious beliefs.’
