Welcome to The Prince of Wales Lodge No 951 one of the HillTop Freemason Lodges meeting in Stow on the Wold.
An innovative and growing lodge of Gloucestershire Freemasons that has a programme of interesting events planned for the future. Some events will include ceremonies for the initiation of new candidates who want to join us and become Gloucestershire Freemasons. However, others will advance the masonic development of our brethren. If you would like to find out what we have been up to then please click on the following link.
