The Royal Arch is the fourth and final step that should be taken by all Master Masons to complete their understanding of Pure, Antient Freemasonry. For those who are already a member, we hope that this website is a useful resource, helping you to find and keep abreast of what is available and current in our Province. For Masons who have not yet taken the step into the Royal Arch, we hope this website will further your knowledge of the Royal Arch, allowing you to appreciate its place in Freemasonry and give you the information you need should you be interested in joining. If you are not a Freemason, you are invited to explore this website. In it you will find an explanation of our aims, history, what we do and where you can find out more.”
