Banners of Craft Lodges in Hertfordshire (Continued)
Northumberland Park Lodge No: 8916
A close association had been formed between the founding members and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. This affinity gave rise to the Lodge's name, as Northumberland Park borders the Spurs home ground at White Hart Lane. The lodge founders were precluded from using the club's name. Consecrated as a London Lodge by RW Bro the Hon E L Ballieu, Assistant Grand Master, on 7th January, 1980, it used to meet in the Chanticleer Conference Dining Suite beneath the main stand. However, the lodge transferred to the masonic centre, Cheshunt on 5th January 1988, and to the Province of Hertfordshire in November 1988.
The banner was dedicated on 11th June 1990 and was funded by holding raffles at each meeting from 1988. The emblem is three trees in a park depicting Northumberland Park under a large square and compasses. The lodge is now closed and the banner stored at Fleet House.
