Leyland Lodge 4546 celebrating 90 years

The Broadfield Arms is the home of Leyland Lodge 4546 and New Era Lodge 10229 who meet alternate Mondays.

Our host is the lovely Nicky Hargreaves who comes to us from Southport and lives with long term partner Jamie.

Leyland Lodge is a member of the Chorley & Blackburn Province - Grand Lodge of England.

Founded 23rd September 1922. One of the founder members was Brother Arthur Sumner, Grandson of James Sumner founder of the once mighty Leyland Motors (Bus & Trucks) It was originally set up as a Lodge for the Motors employees who were Foremen and upwards (Lower & Middle Management).

Prior to the "New Lodge" being formed in 1922 there existed a previous version which was Leyland Lodge 1019, who met at the Railway Hotel, Farington, Leyland. This Lodge came to an end around the time of World War One. Possibly all the young men were either fighting for King & country, or other more pressing matter of the times got in the way. There is no record of its closure, but records show some of the former members became members of the New Leyland Lodge 4546.  


 Today, the modern version of the Lodge still continues and resides at the Broadfield Arms, Leyland Lane, Leyland PR25 1XH and meets every sunday afternoon at 12,30pm till approximately 2.30pm. Good grub can be enjoyed after the meeting at a very low cost, so low its not worth while going home to cook.

The Blue Boy

Why the Blue Boy? Well this "Lodge Member" is our swear box, hence the "Blue". He is a great money raiser and his funds are currently used for travel subsidy. If members spit out their dummys, Blue Boy carries a spare to help restore harmony - after a fine has been paid of course.
