Portus-Felix Lodge

Portus-Felix lodge no: 6712 is the daughter lodge to Royal Lodge 643 in Filey.

Due to the “congestion” occurring in Royal Lodge as it grew… in April 1948, thirty-eight years after Royal Lodge cmmenced, a new lodge was proposed.  At founder meetings throughout 1948, the name of the new lodge, the first officers, meeting dates and constitution were decided, subsequently, on 15th Sept 1948, Portus Felix lodge was consecrated, with 265 masons present.

The name Portus Felix was chosen in preference to St Oswald, being derived from the natural harbour named as a landing place used by the Romans on Filey Brig.  Portus Felix is located on the sheltered side of the Spittals.  A representation of the Spittals can be seen in the centre of the lodge banner and can also be seen on our logo.  An aerial view of the Spittals (below) clearly shows Portus Felix on the landward side.

Portus Felix lodge meets on the first Tuesday of the month… except July and August, with the Installation meeting being in November.
