Lodge Number 9398
Date of Warrant 12 September 1990
Meets at Masonic Hall, Wadebridge PL27 7NX
Originally located in St Columb, the Lodge of the Chisel No. 9398 was formed by three retired members of the teaching profession, W.Bro I C Marsh, W.Bro J W Forward and W.Bro N Hortop. Their motivation was to form an ‘Education Lodge’ and support the drive for there to be 80 lodges in the province of Cornwall - a goal of the Provincial Grand Master at the time, R.W.Bro the Hon. Robert Eliot in the late 1980s. They succeeded in the latter, and the lodge was consecrated on 20th October 1990, but with a wider membership than educationalists.
The Lodge of the Chisel moved to Wadebridge in 2008.
Lodge of the Chisel meets on the second Tuesday in the months of January, February, May, September, October (Installation) and November at 18:45.
