Our Lodge History

It was approved at the December Lodge meeting 1915 that owing to war-time restrictions, no Banquet be held after the installation but refreshment be provided in the Lodge Rooms. It is also recorded that at the Installation Ceremony on 28th January 1916, the master-elect being on Active Service, the W.M. W.Bro. C.K. Butchart having occupied the the Chair for the previous year, it was not necessary to install him again. The Installation Hymn was sung and the W.M. saluted in the three degrees.
Applicants for entry into Masonry were sparse during the War years, but on 28th September, 1917 four applicants were balloted for separately. Three of these were successful, including the late Dr Norman Alexander McLeod, revered in memory not only by Craven Lodge but the whole of Skipton and Craven district.
