Welcome to the Web Site of the Aries Lodge of Mark Master Masons No 669 in the Province of West Yorkshire. We are based at the Midland Hotel in heart of Bradford and right next to Forster Square train station. We were concecrated in December 1917 and so have just Celebrated our 100th year.

It is with the hope that this website will be of interest to not only freemasons but also to the merely intrigued. Within its pages you will find a wealth of information specific to the Mark degree, its history and development throughout.

The Mark degree in freemasonry, which greatly enhances a Craft masons’ understanding of operative masonry, has been practiced very successfully in West Yorkshire since 1871. It continues in a very vibrant Province bringing friendship, knowledge and pleasure to all its’ members. I hope that your exploration of this site will prove equally enjoyable and that it will stimulate you to seek further insight into freemasonry and the Mark Degree in particular.

If you would like to expand your Masonic knowledge, know more about the Mark Degree or join the “friendly order” then take a look at the About the Order page and feel free to get in touch. You can also download the brochure below in PDF format.
