Antient Manor Royal Arch Chapter No 4511
What is Royal Arch Masonry ?
The Royal Arch is the continuation of Craft Freemasonry.
Its members, called Companions, meet in Chapters under a Grand Chapter.
Chapters are ruled over by three Principals, who rule conjointly, and the
Grand Chapter is ruled over by three Grand Principals, with a Pro First
Grand Principal when the First Grand Principal is a Royal Prince.
About Antient Manor Chapter
Antient Manor Chapter was formed by members of Antient Manor Lodge No4511* in 1928. Antient Manor Lodge was the Mother Lodge of Prescot Lodge, (ie Prescot Lodge was formed mainly by members of Antient Manor Lodge).
Antient Manor is a thriving chapter with a buoyant membership meeting at Prescot Masonic Hall four times a year.

New Companion For Antient Manor
The Chapter gained a new companion recently.
Companion Glyn Thomas was exalted in a superb ceremony
presided over by the Three Principals, the Second and Third principals
being unable to attend Chapter “Z” Mel Riley was assisted by acting
“H” Les Norton and acting “J” Ken Hopkins.
Glyn was conducted around the Chapter by “PS” John
Roughley assisted by “1st asst S” John Whalley and proved
an excellent candidate.
During the festive board Glyn was presented with the booklet explaining the workings of Royal Arch Chapter and its history by “E Comp’” Frank Davies and was welcomed into the Chapter by the Principals, members and guests present. Glyn was keen to respond to the toast given to his health proposed by “E Comp” David Hickman and said he looked forward to many years of pleasure in the Chapter.
