A new film which, for the first time, offers a glimpse of what happens in the county's Lodge rooms, has been welcomed by Cheshire Freemasons. The new film, Discover Freemasonry, shows interviews with leading Freemasons, as well as delving into Freemasonry's unique history and symbolism, including the famous handshake.

The Province of Cheshire is the oldest in the United Grand Lodge of England and has been in existence for very nearly 300 years, but, as the film shows, modern Freemasonry fully reflects the face of 21st century Britain. The roots of modern Freemasonry lie with the medieval stonemasons who built our castles and cathedrals, yet it is as relevant today as it was hundreds of years ago.

Head of Cheshire Freemasons, Stephen Blank said: "Freemasons have been at the heart of the community of Cheshire for a long time, but many people have little or no idea what Freemasonry is. I hope this video will go some way to answering that question and provide insight into who we are and what we do. We have thousands of members across the County and this is a great opportunity for people who may be interested in joining us to find out more."
