The Kendal Museum, which is one of the oldest museums in the country, is holding an exhibition to celebrate 300 years of English Freemasonry
The exhibition, called ‘Into the Light’, will run until the end of August to celebrate Freemasonry in Westmorland.
A number of prominent men of Westmorland are known to have been Freemasons including Hardwicke Drummond Rawnsley, co-founder of the National Trust, and William Heelis, husband of Beatrix Potter who was a member of Ambleside Lodge.
Visitors will have the chance to talk to Freemasons and view the fascinating collection of artefacts on loan from a number of local lodges.
The museum is open from 10am to 4pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Freemasons will also be in attendance to talk about the Freemasonry and answer questions from 11am to 3pm every Saturday.
