The Masonic Order of Athelstan, founded in 2005, is based on the historic records of the life and the legend of King Athelstan. The focus of the Order is to show how this early reference to the importance of Masonry in English history was significant for the development of speculative Freemasonry.
The Order, in England and Wales, is structured so that its Provinces, wherever possible, reflect and represent ancient kingdoms of the Anglo-Saxon period. Our Provinces do not therefore correlate directly with the English County divisions. The ancient kingdom of Lindsey covered much of what is now Lincolnshire and parts of Yorkshire.
