Lodges meeting in Keynsham

Nine Lodges meet at the Masonic Hall, Bath Road, Keynsham, Bristol BS31 1SR. A purpose built facility, constructed by the local Lodges of the time in 1939. The Hall boasts one of the largest Lodge Rooms in the Province which was extensively refurbished five years ago. Keynsham is also home to 3 "Bristol Working Lodges" as well as six Emulation Lodges.
The Lodge Room has a set of ten magnificent three dimensional plasterwork friezes which surround the Lodge room depicting the tradition history communicated in the third degree. These have recently been restored to their former glory and in their own right make a visit to the Masonic Hall at Keynsham well worthwhile.
