About the Province

Welcome to the Province and to our Website

As the Provincial Grand Master, I would like to welcome visitors to our website.

This website is here to provide information for both existing Mark Masons
and anyone looking to learn more about us.

We have no secrets, so please feel free to browse the pages, to learn more about our activities, events and history.

We are a relatively small Province in terms of numbers, but large in terms of our geographic area and the generosity of our hearts.

Provincial History

Our history begins in 1871, with the Consecration of St David’s Lodge of Mark Master Masons No. 38 (then known as No. 25) in Llandudno, which came under the control of the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons of England & Wales in 1872.

Eight years later, a second Lodge of Mark Master Masons  – Snowdonia Lodge No. 259, was Consecrated in Porthmadog and in the same year the modern Province of North Wales was formed.
