on behalf of Building Fund
This year Mother Kilwinning, The Mother Lodge of Scotland, started a gofundme campaign.
Our old revered Lodge, consecrated in 1893 is in need of your help.

Our history dates back to the building of Kilwinning Abbey which was built between the years of 1140 and 1180 . The original masons started their fraternity here using the chapter house in the grounds of the Abbey. Following the reformation and the dissolution of the Kilwinning Abbey (which for the most part was destroyed),  the Masons continued to meet in various habitable parts of the Abbey , and then to Crossbrae in the town in which was known as the Masons Howf . 

Mother Kilwinnings' Lodge building now requires substantial work to the famous Ballochmyle red sandstone façade and to the rear elevations which have suffered from over 125 years of weathering. The badly worn tracery requires urgent repairs to bring it back to its former glory.

This work will unfortunately be of substantive in monetary terms.

Within the building the Mother lodge hopes to install a lift from the ground floor to the  1st floor to enable the many senior brethren and public members with disabilities access with ease. This facility is also used in Kilwinning and the wider community of North Ayrshire for anyone to hold  social functions.

The Mother Lodge has been proactive in the starting remedial works and have formed a building committee to oversee all areas that require refurbishment and some minor initial works have been carried out.

With wider help from the public and brethren around the world we would be able to restore and improve this jewel in the Masonic World and be able to pass on its heritage and keep Lodge Mother Kilwinnings' special place in history alive.
