About Us

Stanley Wykeham is a Freemasons’ Lodge in Paddock Wood, Kent.

The Lodge currently has around 30 members in all age groups and from various backgrounds. Our meetings usually start at 1730 and are formed of two parts – administering Lodge business and performing our ancient ceremonies. Following the meetings conclusion, we progress to the bar and enjoy a four course meal in our dining hall, known as the Festive Board. We have an excellent reputation for providing a friendly, and entertaining atmosphere at all times.
