Mowbray Lodge No.5373 is a Lodge of Freemasons meeting at Wearside Masonic Temple. The Lodge meets on the first Wednesday of the month between October and May, excluding January. Meetings commence at 6:45pm. The Installation meeting is in November.


Mowbray Lodge has been warranted since 22nd June 1932 and was consecrated on 19th October 1932, shortly after the construction of Wearside Masonic Temple, to satisfy the growing demand for Freemasonry in Sunderland. The name “Mowbray” will be familiar to the inhabitants of the city; land originally purchased in the 1850s from the prominent Mowbray family allowed the construction of the municipal park that now bears their name, close to the Lodge’s home.


Whilst the Lodge has drawn its membership from a wide variety of backgrounds, Mowbray Lodge is a member of the United Grand Lodge of England’s Universities Scheme, being linked with the University of Sunderland. Consequently, the Lodge has a thriving membership of younger Freemasons originally from across the UK and beyond.
