A word of welcome from

The Inspector General

Very Illustrious Brother Ian Clark 33⁰

Welcome to the website of the District of South West Lancashire which we trust will provide up to date information for current members, and to interested parties offer an insight into our Order.

The Order in England and Wales has been in existence since 1845 and is under the governance of The Supreme Council 33° for England and Wales and its Districts and Chapters Overseas. It has its headquarters at 10 Duke Street, St. James’, London. The District of South West Lancashire maintains 21 Chapters in a relatively small geographical area spanning the industrial towns of the region with Liverpool as the major conurbation. There has been a Rose Croix Chapter in this District since 1864.

An Inspector General is appointed by Supreme Council to lead each District and most have a District Recorder to assist in the administration. I am extremely proud to have been chosen to lead the District of South West Lancashire and sincerely hope that anyone wishing to know more about the Order will contact us. We would be delighted to hear from you.

Over the many years that I have been a member of this Order I have found that it is one of the most inspirational and satisfying fellowships that a Freemason can experience. The spiritual inspiration that it offers, and the moral life principles that it encourages us to follow place a great personal responsibility on its members, but in return gives great satisfaction to those who are obedient to its precepts.
