Brookfield , the Westhoughton Masonic Hall is located just off Church Street . It is a superb building in its own grounds and has extensive and secure car-parking. The first lodge, Westhoughton No. 4215 was consecrated on 13 April 1921.
In 1989 the main dining and function room was extensively damaged by fire which fortunately did not extend to the lodge room. The large re-structured dining room, which seats 200, is considered to be one of the finest in the Province. Recently the building has undergone substantial extension and a new wing has been added. The hall now boast two lodge rooms, a Chapter or “smaller degrees” room, a small practice lodge room, two new committee rooms and a large robing room.
Following the closure of Wigan ’s town-centre Masonic Hall the majority of its Lodges moved to the three halls on the town’s periphery, Hindley, Ashton-in-Makerfield and Pemberton. Two Lodges, however, decided to move into the Chorley Group and the group has been delighted to welcome the The Peace Lodge No. 2269 and Greenhill Lodge No. 6260, both of which now meet at Westhoughton.
