Provincial Grand Lodge of East Lancashire
As with many large organisations, to administer and run them is virtually impossible from one administrative centre. Freemasonry therefore is split into a number of provinces that look after Freemasons Lodges in their area. Our Lodge, King Edward the Seventh, being based in Manchester comes under the auspices of the Provincial Grand Lodge of East Lancashire.
