An insight into Freemasonry...

Our goal is to provide a positive insight into what Freemasonry has to offer. Within these pages you will find out about Freemasonry in general, about Cranleigh Freemasons and the Province of Surrey.

Freemasonry may be summed up in the following manner; a moral code; a study in the art of life; a way of life. The fraternity is based on these three principles:

Brotherly Love:

Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and understanding to his fellow man.


Freemasons are taught to practice charity, and to care, not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole, both by charitable giving, and by voluntary efforts and works, as individuals.


Freemasons strive for truth, requiring high moral standards and aiming to achieve them in their own lives.

If you feel that you have the qualities that make a good Mason read more about Freemasonry or contact us for more information.

The purpose of Freemasonry is the self development of the individual as an independent, thinking, ethical, compassionate man of integrity. It is often said ‘Freemasonry takes good men and makes them better.’
That is true – it also gives us great friendships with people we know we can trust.
