Musket, Pike & Drum (MPD) was consecrated as a Staffordshire Lodge in 2015. Following due process it became a Derbyshire Lodge in 2022. During this period (and this included the COVID-19 Lockdowns) our membership swelled by 43. Members span the country, Edinburgh to Alton, Exmoor to Kings Lynn, so we are somewhat peripatetic.
MPD, is a thriving Lodge that takes all new members on a Masonic journey; that, whilst furnishing enlightenment, also introduces them to a widening circle of new friends from all walks of life. Many have similar interests, others contribute in other ways. Charity, honesty, friendship and mutual support are all characteristics of the ‘family Lodge’ that is MPD
MPD was formed as a ‘Specialist Lodge’ for those with an interest in history, but importantly, those within the hobby of historical re-enactment. Any one is welcome of course, and as the Lodge is buoyant and vibrant, we even have members who only became interested in re-enactment after joining!
