In the story of Weston-super-Mare there is an old and oft repeated tradition that the adjoining village of Kewstoke was named after St. Kew. He, it was said, was a hermit who lived in a cell, the ruins of which may still be traced, in a ravine climbed by a long flight of stone steps leading from Kewstoke Church to the top of Worle Hill. The ravine is known as the "Pass of St. Kew" or Monks-Steps The St. Kew Lodge was consecrated in the year 1868 and is the daughter Lodge of the Lodge of Agriculture, No. 1199

Birnbeck Lodge No 7160

Meets at 19:00 except September, on the third Wednesday
Months – Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Sep (Installation 17:30), Oct, Nov and Dec

The name for Birnbeck Lodge was taken from a large rock, once an island guarding the entrance to Weston Bay, but now connected to the mainland by a pier and housing the local RNLI lifeboat. The Lodge was consecrated on 11th June 1952. It is the only Lodge in Weston-super-Mare to start meetings at 7.00 pm. The Founders agreed this so that members could arrive in a relaxed frame of mind after having more time to get home from work. Despite the pressures of contemporary life, we still try to maintain the traditions and standards of our Founders but remain open minded enough to embrace the modern world.

Tivoli Lodge was Consecrated on Saturday 28th September 1991 and was the second Lodge in Somerset to meet on a Saturday morning and invite the Ladies to the Festive Board.

The building represented on the banner is in fact the ‘Triumphant Arch’ entrance to the cinema, whilst the masks of joy and sorrow within the entrance gateway represent its theatrical history.
